it’s the day most rugby fans can’t wait for and it always divides opinion.
The release of new kits can produce instant hits, turn off supporters or come up with styles which prove to be “growers” with time.
And the fresh new Northampton Saints away shirt has certainly done that.
We’ve scoured Twitter to gather some of them for and against the designs…
The positive comments…
Now that is seriously cool kit. Much better than the lollypop lady kit of last season.

I like it, tbh basing the away kit design on a herd of vomiting wildebeest still beats that lime debacle 😂

Like it.. The @ToolstationUK logo works well with the colour scheme as well

I think it’s nice, a lot better than the bright green

The negative comments…
It’s not very Saints.

Claret are the colours of the county (not maroon or burgundy). Please try harder.

Not for me I’m afraid. Unless of course it can be bought without the “Toolstation” thing on the front.

Not a massive fan of it, but if we play well I don’t mind at all 🙂 #COYS
