South Africa have retained the Rugby World Cup with a narrow win over New Zealand in the final.
In the process, the Springboks have become the first country to win the competition four times – and each victory has been achieved with a different equipment manufacturer.
In 1995, the kit was produced by English firm Cotton Traders, though makers’ logos were not allowed on on-pitch clothing.
After a stint with Nike, they were clad in Canterbury for their 2007 win, while they had moved on to Asics by the time of the 2019 victory.
Earlier this year, they returned to Nike. The American company had produced kit for three countries at the World Cup – South Africa, Argentina and Fiji – and all three reached the quarter-finals with two making the semis.
South Africa also created history in that they wore three different shirts at the competition.
In their opening match against Scotland, their regular alternative strip was used, but that was considered to clash with Ireland’s green kit in a game where the Springboks were again classed as the away team.
