Pics: The Best Jersey In Rugby Has Just Gotten Better

When it comes to the honour of boasting the best rugby jersey on the planet, there are several pretenders to the throne.

However, in our mind, there can only be one winner. The newly-formed Super Rugby franchise, Jaguares, endured a tough maiden season in the southern hemisphere’s premier club competition last year.

Tipped by many as a dark horse to challenge for honours, the Argentina-based club struggled for large parts of the season, finishing in 13th place in the overall standings.

Throughout the highs and the lows of the season, there was one consistency; the raw beauty of their kit.

However, the best has become better again 2017, as the Jaguares have released their jersey for the upcoming 2017 season.

The Nike outfit has introduced a horizontal stripe across the chest, in subtle yet significant change.

The Argentinians will be hoping that they enjoy better fortunes in this kit than they did during their debut season of Super Rugby in 2016.
