Manca ormai poco più di una settimana al debutto delle Coppe Europee, che vedranno le due squadre scozzesi impegnate in Champions Cup (i Glasgow Warriors, che ospiteranno allo Scotstoun Stadium i Leicester Tigers) e Challenge Cup (con Edinburgh Rugby di scena in Romania, ‘uncharted territory’ per i Gunners, in casa dei Timisoara Saracens).

Connacht Rugby ha presentato oggi la divisa con cui giocherà in Champions Cup – in un girone piuttosto complicato, con Wasps, Stade Toulousain e Zebre.

Ecco un estratto del comunicato ufficiale della Province che presenta la nuova maglia:

(…) The new European jersey features strands of blue and fluro green across the chest and back on a solid black base colour. The shoulder and upper back panel revert to fluro green to break up the detailed graphic component of the jersey. The chest and BLK logos are applied using a unique silicone gel finish while there are Lycra side panels finished with fluro sleeve cuffs. 
The jerseys are made with BLK’s exclusive Exotek fabric throughout the main body which maximises player comfort and manoeuvrability. Exotek is the strongest, lightest and most breathable and soft-to-touch fabric ever used by BLK with its four-way stretch properties setting it apart as a market leader. This is paired with subtle hints of green integrated into the new BLK collar design.
The new European Jersey will be available to purchase in Elverys Intersport stores and online at from October 5th 2016.
Lo Stade Toulousain, invece, ha annunciato che la super-sfida del secondo turno della Pool 2, quella tra i francesi e gli Wasps, non si giocherà più a Le Stadium ma tornerà ad essere disputata nella casa dei quattro volte campioni d’Europa.
Il comunicato ufficiale dell’EPCR:
The Toulouse v Wasps European Rugby Champions Cup, Round 2 fixture on Sunday, 23 October has been moved from Le Stadium to Stade Ernest Wallon.

Due to ongoing concerns over the playing surface at Le Stadium, Toulouse decided on a change of venue after consultation with EPCR, and the Pool 2 match will be staged at the club’s customary home ground with the same kick-off of 16.15 (local time).  

The clash of the four-time European Cup winners and the current Aviva Premiership leaders will be televised live on BT Sport in the UK and Ireland, and live on France Télévisions and beIN Sports in France.”
