Canterbury unveils new RAF Spitfires Rugby 7s kit

Canterbury unveils new RAF Spitfires Rugby 7s kit

The team, which is made up of serving RAF personnel, take their name from the iconic RAF Spitfire used in World War II, will be seen in the new kit for the first time at the Bournemouth 7s Festival on May 23-25.

The new home shirt in traditional RAF cronulla blue features a blueprint design of an RAF Spitfire, while the alternative shirt - known as the ‘Invasion Shirt’ - boasts a design taken directly from the classic markings of a spitfire plane.

The invasion stripes on the arm of the shirt are representative of the alternating black and white bands painted on the wings of World War II aircraft, while the yellow represents the iconic propeller blade tips.

For the first time, following requests from fans and supporters keen to show their dedication to the team, there will also be a casual range available consisting of a hooded jumper, polo shirt, tee and singlet.

£5 from each shirt sold will go to the charities supported by the RAF Rugby Union.

So far donations have helped raise over £30,000 for the RAF Benevolent Fund and Khelo Rugby, a tag rugby project for disadvantaged children in India. 

Chris Stephenson, Canterbury CEO, says: “The RAF Rugby 7s shirt is one of our best sellers and it is fantastic that this year we are able to launch two new kits for their 2014 season alongside a brand new supporters range.

“We wish the team the best of luck in their upcoming tournaments.”
