All Blacks may swap silver for red at Rugby World Cup

All Blacks manager Darren Shand says the team will consider swapping their iconic silver fern for a red fern at Rugby World Cup matches in a symbolic gesture to quake-hit Christchurch.

I think it's an awesome idea, don't think you could think of better gesture in this country. Who knows it might even bring us some luck

yeah maybe - colin meads has brought up that doing so no longer makes it a "silver" fern which is kinda the whole symbolism of it...

i'm not fussed either way, but maybe something like adding a red band to the sleeve instead...

I'd go with that.

Especially if it was something permanently embroidered on the sleeve, as opposed to a temporary armband as is the usual custom.

I'm not a big fan of changing something as fundamental as the fern, even for something of this magnitude.

And I think its pertinent that many Cantabrians themselves, like McCaw and Grizz Wylie, arent keen on the idea either.

I think its a stupid idea. History says that when we mess with the jersey bad things happen. I'm not superstitious, I'm just saying. I agree with something embroided on the sleeve.

Red is also NZ's lesser known colour contrary to popular belief.
