England, 2012

According to the England Rugby Union, the inspiration for this strip "came from the original purple tracksuit England players used to wear and in line with the value we place upon our heritage." Speaking of value, would you outlay 91 pounds for this baby?

    Jeepers. Some insecure Australians must have put this list together! It seems like it is just giving the kiwis a hard time. Our Australian uniforms have been FAR worse than the majority of these over the past 30 years! P.S. What colour would you suggest the All Blacks wear when their opposition in in Navy blue!?! Another genius article!

    The beige isnt so bad; it's the hair helmet that's weird.

    Remember - these outfits are designed to be colourful and able to be viewed from a distance. That is why performers always have what would normally be overdone makeup, eyes and lipstick - it is meant to be seen from a distance and look okay, not washed out.

    It's only sport - not a formal ball. Get a grip.
