France in blue, New Zealand in grey

 Allez les Bleus: France will play in blue against New Zealand


PARIS, 6 October - Following discussions between Rugby World Cup Limited, the Participating Unions, the host broadcaster TVH and match officials it has been agreed by all parties that New Zealand will wear grey shirts with dark shorts and dark socks while France will wear blue shirts with white shorts and white socks for the IRB Rugby World Cup 2007 quarter-final match in Cardiff on Saturday 6 October.

This decision was taken to ensure that players and match officials would be more able to identify players from each team and also in the interest of television viewers around the world.

RWCL would like to thank the Unions for their assistance in reaching this agreement, in particular the FFR who had won the toss.

During the review process all kit combinations were considered and it was clear that neither any Union nor the Organising Committee was at fault for the fact that the initial kit preference of the Unions could not be accommodated.
