Worst Rugby Shirts of All Time

It’s not easy to keep coming up with interesting shirt designs every single year. This however, does not excuse the kits we have put in this list.  

These are some of the worst rugby kits, ever!

Stade Français have enough dreadful kits to create a list of their own. Their 2010 away kit featured the face of Blanche of Castile, wife of Louis VIII, and former queen of France. Club owner Max Guazzini believes that unusual designs will gain the club more exposure. This is most likely the reason they feature three times on this list.

We are not sure if this was designed to intimidate the opponent, or blend in with the pitch. Either way it looks pretty terrible!

Stade Français went for an Andy Warhol-esque design for the 2008/09 season. While artistic in style, it looks very much like it has been put together on Microsoft Paint.

It looks like this kit was designed to give the opponent a headache. While it may not be the ugliest kit on this list, it is by far the worst England kit ever.

Repeat offenders Stade Français finally ditched the Blanche of Castile design in 2011. It looks like less thought has gone into this one, they just took a plain shirt and covered it in flowers.

This could be the first time a comic strip has appeared on a team’s rugby kit. Hopefully it will also be the last.

Fortunately for Exeter fans, this shirt was only used for Heineken Cup games. The downside being, some of Europe had to be exposed to it!

This is what happens when you get a tattoo artist to design a rugby shirt using only a blue biro!

If you are sponsored by the Namibian Milk Board, it does not mean your shirt needs to look like a cow. In our opinion this is the worst shirt on the list, and ironically due to its rarity, it has now become highly collectable!

 

That concludes our list of the worst rugby shirts ever. Don’t forget to let us know which shirt you think is the most awful, and if you want to check out some shirts featuring quality designs, you can view our full range of rugby jerseys here
