Looking at those Munster fans must be so jealous of us.

Sure there's no way they could get a 21 page thread moaning about those jerseys.

They still look ridiculous.

True but they still look odd in the photo of the new gear.

So last year they copied Borrussia Dortmund's jersey with their 3rd jersey last year and this year they're copying the German National side's jersey with their away kit... :wink:

Home one is good tho. return to form from last year when they looked like Liverpool.

They probably don't do them in kids' sizes yet.

In fairness its pretty good and the away one is very nice indeed. I thing they've played it pretty safe (in fact the home and blue training look almost identical to ones from a couple of seasons okay).

The green one is just awful though!

really like the 1st 3 jerseys. Glad munster use the home one for 2 seasons, so i can justify buying 2 jerseys. Fair play to munster, they obviously listened to the supporters. great to see the traditional white shorts back, i wasn't impresssed by the red ones.

Curls looks a lot bigger there than I see him in my mind's eye. When did that happen? Nice kit all the same, green one excepted.

Anyone else think the white away gear with gold and navy/blue lines looped around it looks somewhat similar to our alternate circa 2001??

The home one is like 50% immitation of an AC Milan jersey in the 90's. It would be quality if they got LOTTO on there somewhere. The away one looks like something Oliver Bierhoff wore in his prime. The 3rd strip is boring but, then again, most teams conserve the bland for a 3rd jersey. That green one is simply ridiculous.

Glad they opted away from the red shorts. That combination was disgusting and always made POC looks very awkward or uncomfortable.

Still.....whsilt their jerseys are ugly, they're still a lot nicer than ours.


Cue the bitching, but sort of hoping Munster have another European season like that they last year!

Interesting to see Leamy talk about how close he was to retirement with that knee injury.
