    Why was Ireland wearing white v Tonga and why was Wales wearing black v Portugal? Their traditional colours would not have clashed.
    Does this have something to do with what was raised recently about colour impaired people finding it hard to distinguish colours e.g. green vs red or red vs yellow? The example at the time was NZ v SA black vs green. Is this where this is going or am I reading too much into it?

    Not sure I agree with this. How is Wales wearing black/yellow vs Portugal's white easier to see than Wales wearing red vs Portugal's white? Political correctness gone mad. Not happy Jan.

    World Rugby trying to generate revenue via alternate jersey sales.

    The colorblindness excuse is just that.
