Optional Saints Clothing and Gear Order

Please see the attached order form and sizing chart from Kukri this year for Saints Junior Kit.  Please forward your orders to junior@saintsrugby.com by May 1, 2014.  I would recommend ordering at least one size bigger than the recommended sizing.  As well, the shorts will be a longer style short this year than last.
