England have revealed their home and alternate kits for the 2014/2015 international season.

The new home kit features the iconic English red rose being placed in the centre of the chest for the first time.

The new kit will make its debut when England take on New Zealand at Twickenham Stadium on November 8.

A new crimson red alternate kit, drawing inspiration from the St George's Cross and the rose, has also been launched and will be worn by against Samoa on Saturday, November 22.

“The England shirt is a source of huge pride for the players,” said England Head Coach Stuart Lancaster.

“It's a special moment when they receive it before an international as it represents many things – those that have supported the players on their path to become an England player, former internationals who have worn the shirt before them, all those who are involved in and support the game and the English nation as a whole.

“That pride in wearing the shirt is massively important to the players and hopefully it is something the fans can see and connect with.

“It's great that the alternate kit is very much in keeping with our national colours and as such we have chosen the Samoa game to wear it in preparation for the Rugby World Cup as this may be required during the tournament.

“The support for the squad over the past few seasons has been fantastic and it really means a lot to the players, the coaches and the wider support team that we all look to build that English national identity on the way to the World Cup.”
