I am watching the east Midlands Derby on TV and have noticed that the saints players are not wearing matching socks.

Any one know why they are not wearing team socks?

Perhaps it's something to do with the Rob Horne theme - wearing socks belonging to all rugby teams in support of the cause. Checked on Google and they are Community Club socks worn in support of Rob Horne.

Ahh, fair enough. That makes sense. At first I thought it was a Baabaa type of thing where they wear international socks. But they did not have enough full internationals

The commentary team mentioned it too early on - I had missed that but husband is in and watching the recording and I heard them then.

The Barbarians wear club socks - Jerry Collins famously wore Barnstaple socks when he played. I've always thought that he didn't realise you had to provide your own and was pleased to find the sweaty, dirty Barnstaple ones still in his kit bag after his holiday excursions with the club ...

Very good touch, given the reason for moving the game to HQ.
