Manufacturer Asics unveiled the new sweater at a flashy event in Sydney on Wednesday, with the design of the & # 39; innovative, dynamic & # 39; sweater that is said to be inspired by the triumphant teams of 1991 and 1999.

Asics said the sweater needed 3,000 hours to design with the aim of giving the Wallabies an advantage during the tournament.

But some fans pointed out that the sweater – which is sold for $ 160 – looked exactly like the Springboks uniform, but in a different color.
