The WRU describe the trim as 'Welsh gold, inspired by the highly prized rarity once found in Welsh mines'.

The shoulders also feature ‘Oxblood’ detail across the shoulders, according to the Union. The Union say: "Oxblood was used in buildings like the Pontcysyllte Aqueduct, on the Llangollen canal, where it was added to the lime mortar used to bind the masonry together following ancient superstition that the blood of a strong animal would strengthen a building or structure."

The range will be available from other major retailers from Monday.
