The new jersey was unveiled by the team’s shirt partner on Monday, and it was designed in collaboration with Khayelitsha-based designer Mzukisi Mbane.

The Boks will face Wales in Cardiff in their tour opener on November 6 before they move on to Edinburgh to face Scotland on November 13.

They will finish their tour with a match against England at Twickenham on November 20.

It’s not yet clear which match the jersey will make its appearance.

“The print that I decided to go with for the jersey, is largely inspired by the iconic African ‘imprint’,” Mbane told the Asics website.

He added: The pattern on the jersey is inspired by the story I was telling about the print, which is people moving around looking for a better life.

“That is represented by a maze. When you look into the jersey you see this interesting maze with this Africa feel.

“The story of my people moving from different rural areas to the cities looking for a better life.”
