1980 circa East Region experiment with Lycra

Gill Bickerstaffe (East Region) in experimental playing dress against New Zealand during a tour by New Zealand in the early 1980s.

East Region wanted to do something different (a normal process for them) with playing dress.  They came up with a style well before its time and used lycra material.  Although the players liked the freedom it gave them, it was too different for the 1980s and was dropped shortly afterwards.
