RogNewKitPlease forgive this Gok Wan-ish kick-off, but white shorts are back in Munster Rugby vogue.
Reminding us of an age when a soaked rugby jersey weighed like chainmail in the driving rain, when players trudged out the laps with illumination solely provided by a Cortina’s headlights, Munster’s white shorts have returned.
Sure to test the qualities of many a detergent after a night in the mud, the white shorts donned by Ronan O’Gara, Denis Leamy and their team mates last week confined Munster’s all-red aberration to history.
