Pacific Islanders to see Red in England

England will wear their predominantly red ‘change strip’ when they face the Pacific Islanders in the Investec Challenge test match on Saturday, November 8. Kick off 2.30pm.

It will be the second time England have worn the current change strip. They wore the red change jersey and shorts when they met France in Marseille in August 2007.

The change has been necessary because England’s traditional white jersey clashes with the first choice strip of the Pacific Islanders, which is predominantly the same colour.

England previously wore a navy blue ‘change strip’ in 1999 when they faced Fiji in the RWC quarter final play off at Twickenham Stadium and in the same year a variation of the blue jersey was worn again when they faced Australia in their Centenary celebration match in Sydney.
