St George’s Day has been marked with the launch of the brand new England kit for 2009/10.

Once again the England kit carries the cross of St George and today was chosen as the best date to launch the new strip, ahead of the Four Nations in the autumn.

Phil Williams, Marketing Manager, RFL states: “With the Four Nations on the horizon this autumn I’m sure fans will relish wearing this new England shirt with pride.  It was striking during the World Cup just how many England fans were out there in Australia wearing England’s colours and I hope we’ll see the same this year starting with the international against France in June.”

England will face France, Australia and New Zealand in the end of season tournament hoping to erase the memories of a bad World Cup in Australia last year.

Roger Harrison, Marketing Director, PUMA, said: “The innovative 09/10 England RL Kit is a powerful reminder to Rugby League supporters of England’s national identity. In a few months time, the team will walk out wearing the intimidating and authoritative design, backed by eager supporters that share the national spirit and determination that the St. George symbol has come to stand for in English sport today.’

The England kit has today been launched at alongside the official new Leisurewear and Accessories ranges which are also available to buy now. The team’s official Trainingwear range is due to be launched in advance of the summer weather on the website from 29th May 2009.
