Australia have unveiled the Wallabies jersey and alternate kit for for the Rugby World Cup 2015.

The jersey will be worn for the first time when the Wallabies take on Fiji at Millennium Stadium in Cardiff on 23 September in the Aussies’ first pool match of the Rugby World Cup.

Days after unveiling the new Springbok jersey, manufacturers ASICS are calling this kit "the most technically innovative rugby union jersey developed by ASICS to date."

"Designed by scientists at the ASICS Institute of Sports Science (ISS) in Kobe Japan, the project has been an 18 month long collaboration between ASICS, the ARU and Wallabies squad members, who have been integral in testing designs throughout the process," read a statement. 

"Through scientific research and testing, ASICS has been able to develop a jersey that is lighter, stronger, more ergonomically fitted and harder to grab than previous Wallabies jerseys. The jersey has also been created with specially designed grip points which will enable players to hold the ball more securely."

Wallabies hooker Stephen Moore said: "When you see the detail and the research that the scientists at ASICS put into developing this jersey specifically for our World Cup campaign it gives you confidence that you are wearing the best and most advanced jersey."
