Springbok kit 2013

New kit, same captain: Jean de Villiers

The Springboks have unveiled their kit for 2013 which its manufacturers have called their "most innovative, cutting-edge jersey."

"A lot of hard work has gone into producing the new jersey, which should benefit the Boks this year," said SARU CEO Jurie Roux.

The new jersey features fewer panels and seams, providing extra comfort, ease of movement and stretch, as well as lighter weight.

"As our new banknotes carry a watermark, so our supporters will carry the Springbok embossing on their chests," said Du Toit Botes, GM of Canterbury SA.

"Previously, the embossing was only found on the back neck of the Springboks' Test jersey. For the first time ever, the supporters will carry the mark on their chests.

"The embossing will also be a clear indication of authentic jerseys and our unified fight against crime. Pledge your support to the Springboks and buy original."
