The new Ulster Rugby kit for the upcoming season has been unveiled.

The home and away jerseys will be donned by legendary players and fans alike for the 2014/15 season.

Designed by the Kukri team in Lisburn, the home jersey is made from Taloc fabric which is said to be lightweight but durable.

It features the side's traditional colours of white, red and black.

But the Ulstermen will now be wearing an away jersey even musical genius Prince would be proud of.

The purple top also incorporates Ulster red across the chest and collar.

The new away jersey will be worn for the first time when the Ulstermen play Exeter Chiefs in a pre-season friendly match at Kingspan Stadium on August 22.
