The Ospreys have unveiled the new super hero jersey which they will wear in this weekend’s Welsh derby against Cardiff Blues.
The slightly odd ‘Batjersey’ has been designed following a tie-up between the region and kit supplier BLK with DC Comics.
The design will be worn at the Liberty Stadium and again during the Christmas derby period before they are auctioned off for charity in the new year.
The eye-catching jersey incorporates the world famous Bat logo across the chest and a dark knight Batsuit body armour detailing, supposed to give the men in black the full Bruce Wayne look as they square off against their sworn Welsh enemies.
The BLK/DC partnership was launched earlier this year when Super Rugby teams Melbourne Rebels and Queensland Reds wore Superman and The Flash jerseys respectively.
Ospreys chief executive Andrew Hore told WalesOnline last week: “We have a long and proud track record of using the phenomenal interest and demand in the Ospreys jersey in creative ways and this year, thanks to BLK’s licensing agreement with DC Comics, we have been able to take it a step further than ever before with this incredible Batjersey.
