Cape Town - Ireland will take on the Springboks in their upcoming Test match in black jerseys.

With both teams sporting traditional green jerseys, the home team usually wears a white strip when the side's clash. However, for this game in Dublin on November 10 the home team will for the very first time don a predominantly black jersey.

"With South Africa coming to town the launch of a new Ireland alternate jersey gives us an opportunity to bring some variety to how we present the Irish rugby brand," IRFU Commercial & Marketing Director, Padraig Power, told the Planet Rugby website.

"We think the new green and black jersey looks fantastic. The style is contemporary and innovative and the team really love the look. Our feedback from supporters has been very positive and we expect it to look really strong on the pitch. We think our supporters will be delighted with it and they will wear it with pride."

The Boks fly to Europe on Saturday and after the Ireland game have Tests against Scotland in Edinburgh (November 17) and England in London the following week.
