Fans not sold on new-look Bok jersey

2017-06-10 08:00

Cape Town - South African rugby fans aren't impressed by the new-look Springbok jersey ahead of Saturday's Test against France at Loftus Versfeld.

After having announced MTN as the new major sponsor of the side, the Boks then unveiled their new jersey when legend Bakkies Botha handed them out to the match-day squad ahead of Friday's team photograph. 

Sport24 asked supporters to let us know what they think of the new-look jersey.

This is what some of you have had to say so far:

Louis Nel: This is truly one of the most hideous Springbok jerseys ever. How the green and gold can be degraded like this is a tragedy.

Loyiso Mahali: I rate it 10/10. 

Eckard Nieman: The jersey is super, it's the MTN logo that looks terrible.

Andre van der Merwe: Disgraceful!

Jason Boud: Really distasteful from MTN...having this huge yellow blob smack bang in the middle of the jersey...nothing stylish or subtle about this design at all.

Stefan Duvenage: Awful.

Johan Fourie: Worst one yet.

Stephen Smith: Not a fan of the new jerseys. They look cheap, sorry to say.

Wayne Lardner: The ugliest looking jersey in Bok history.

Les Pratt: You gotta be joking!

Franco Bolevin: Why put the yellow circle? Just a yellow MTN would have been fine. Looks like a knock off.

Denvil DavidsNot a good choice at all

Dylan Bowen: The Bok jersey is fine but the MTN logo looks terrible. Guys it is so bad and it is so clear and obvious it looks cheap and nasty.

Mogammad Shukr: A nice yellow blob on the front of the new Springbok jersey. It will help with avoiding high tackles.
