New Connacht Rugby Logo was created by sparking
My first impression is that it's not an improvement

up-fronted and risen-up

I really don't like it. I was a big fan of the old one and I don't understand why they've changed it.

I like it, it's cleaner simpler but still connacht. They've tidied and beefed up the old one

I'm not over the moon about the font, but I think it's growing on me.

That said: it looks brilliant on the jersey: www.elverys.ie/elverys/en/Elverys/Rugby/...00000001097317_GREEN

I agree that it looks well on the jersey, not overly gone on the jersey either though :dry:

I'm not so keen on the new logo. Does anybody think the new jersey looks quite similar to recent home jerseys? I don't think I could justify forking out 75 Euros for a top that looks like the other tops I already have. Hopefully, BLK does something a little more adventurous with the Champions Cup jersey.

I absolutely hate it, a total misstep by the marketing team and the jersey is not great either, can't understand why fans aren't consulted on these matters.

The new jersey is not dissimilar to the old one from the front. But the simpler crest, moving the intersports logo to the sleeve, and moving the BLK logo off the collar onto the shirt proper, combine to really tidy it up nicely. The back isn't nearly so successful: the sponsor logos clash with the offset hoops.

I quite like the new crest, once they changed the old crest from full colour to all white it didn't look right anyway.

I like it. As said earlier it's not too dissimilar from the last jersey.

It's like they based the proportion of the birds head to the rest of its body on Eddie the Eagle

Not bothered one way or another about the crest.
If someone asked me to draw the old logo from memory, I wouldn't have a chance.

I've seen enough football teams crest changes, to realise no one ever likes change, but come back in a years time, and no one will care.
If they felt it needed an update, fair enough. As someone posted on boards, it's possible, that the reason for changes to more simplistic logos like this, is for social media.
Most people view these things on small screens, or on profile pics. It needs to be simple and clear for recognition

@ConnachtCows - Always looking for new followers :)

The Eagle looks like it's wearing pants and it's really bothering me.

Let's give them the benefit of the doubt and imagine they're Hulk-A-Pants.
