Samurai Sportswear are delighted to announce their design for Jamaica Rugby Football Union’s OMG ICONIX™ test jersey, to be debuted on the world stage at Hong Kong 7s.
The main inspiration for the design of this shirt is the proud, patriotic nature of the Jamaican people. The colours used on the shirt, depicting those on the Jamaican flag are all said to have different meanings. Black portrays the strength and creativity of the people, gold represents the natural wealth and beauty of sunlight and green highlights the hope and agricultural resources of the country. It signifies the birth of the nation and brings to mind memories of past achievements and gives inspiration towards further success. Because of the connotations behind the Jamaican flag, it was the ideal muse for this shirt and those wearing it are certain to be motivated to succeed. These colours will also be highlighted throughout an away shirt and leisurewear range created by Samurai’s in house design team.
Having qualified for the World Sevens for the first time, Jamaica are certain to stand out in their OMG ICONIX™ test jerseys and the shirt’s on-field features are guaranteed to help Jamaica RFU to reach their potential. The jersey is engineered with high performance 4D fabric, integrated performance collar and anti-pinch underarm panelling to allow a full range of movement, whilst Samurai’s exclusive PerformeX™ fabrics make it wicking and breathable.
Jamaica Men’s Sevens Coach Marcel Garvey has said ‘I am extremely happy and excited that Samurai will be the kit suppliers to all sections of Jamaica Rugby Football Union. Having personally known the brand for a long time, it was a no brainer for us to team up with Samurai. Jamaica is a sleeping rugby nation and working with Samurai has given us real hope we will continue to develop. Both the men’s and women’s teams qualified for Hong Kong 7s and we will go there and give it our best shot.’
Samurai Sportswear are thrilled to be working with Jamaica Rugby Football Union, as they hunt for glory on the world stage and look forward to seeing this shirt in action. By working with Samurai Sportswear, an industry leader in the manufacture of custom teamwear which already has associations with a number of national teams, Jamaica RFU have highlighted their ambition to compete with the best.
