And you thought Simon Shutler's shirt was a bit garish...

Remember the shirt Simon (the Saracens coach and ref) wore last Sunday (left)? Bit bright, colourful, garish, maybe mildly tasteless?

You ain't seen nothing yet. It was a picture of sartorial elegance compared with the shirt on the right.

Yes - it is a rugby shirt.

Yes - as worn by a professional rugby team.

This is - I kid you not - the shirt that will be worn by Stade Francais this season. 

Admittedly they have a reputation for playing in pink shirts tastefully decorated with flowers, etc. but this really takes things to another level. Its so bad that actually its rather good. 

And there is one obvious benefit. They'll only ever need the one design as they could never claim that there was a colour clash with any opposition team...

    Or rather maybe you could claim that there would always be a colour-clash with the other team!

    How rude! I liked Simons shirt. On such a wet, gloomy day it was (a) cheerful and more importantly (b) easy to pick out where the ref was!
