England have unveiled their new kit for the upcoming home World Cup at a glitzy presentation at Twickenham.

Four price points of £120, £70, £60 and £55 have been set for the men’s shirt – the junior size is £50 – although the £120 jersey is a commemorative Test edition of which 2015 are available.

The change strip is red with England revealing more than 220 hours of testing and over 250,000 miles of travel have gone into perfecting the design, including the addition of a red rose that has been 3D injection-moulded.

“It’s truly an honour to have the World Cup shirt on. Over the last three-and-a-half, four years there’s been a lot spoken about the tournament,” England captain Chris Robshaw said.

“Of course a lot of rugby is judged on the World Cup and those are the games that people remember. To be part of one in England puts us in an extremely privileged position.

“I’m very proud to be captain, I have some great people around me, some great players.

“We challenge each other in the right way and we’re getting closer as a group. That should put us in a good place for the World Cup.”

The new shirts lifts the number of England kits released over the last 10 months to six and the Rugby Football Union has already been accused by fans of profiteering from the World Cup.

The £50 price point for the junior jersey is also sure to attract criticism.
