    They have had a black alternate for at least a couple of seasons, though I don't know how often the wear it.

    I think they get new kit every game, but this weeks had poppies on it, so not really suitable at other times.

    They have at least one new strip every year , often two.
    That particular shirt, with the red flashing , was brand new (although it is similar to previous ones )

    England wore that purple monstrosity a few years ago and then there was that 1871 replica. You'd think someone in marketing was influencing the kit choice(s) - surely not!

    Back on shirt numbers. I saw a L5 game this weekend with a team having 2x #12 playing.

    RFU Regulation 13 is your friend in England:

    13.6.3 Kit
    Clash of Colours
    (a) In the event of Clubs having clashing or similar colours:
    (i) At Levels 3 to 5, the away team shall be responsible for changing its colours subject to the satisfaction of the appointed Referee.

    (ii) At Levels 6 and below, the home team shall be responsible for changing its colours subject to the satisfaction of the appointed Referee.

    (iii) In the Cup Competitions, the home team shall be responsible for changing its colours subject to the satisfaction of the appointed Referee;

    unless the Organising Committee of the League or Cup Competition concerned has in its regulations or administrative instructions
    specified the alternative team must change its colours.

    (b) In respect of a Cup Competition match played at a neutral venue, the home team will be decided by the toss of a coin at least two days before the match by the Committee in the presence of two independent witnesses.

    Numbering

    (c) The jerseys of Clubs should all be numbered in accordance with any World Rugby requirements in order to ensure the correct identification of all players and replacements during a match.


    As ever with rugby, the use of "should" leaves room for uncertainty. Under Regulation 2, it is for the Constituent Body (i.e. the county or similar branch of the RFU) to manage the application of the regulations:

    2.2.2 Every Club and Constituent Body shall ensure that it complies with these
    Regulations and must further ensure that it takes appropriate action to
    inform every member of that Club or Constituent Body (as applicable)
    of the terms of these Regulations and the obligations of that member to
    comply with these Regulations. The RFU may (but shall not be obliged
    to) from time to time issue guidelines in relation to the implementation
    of these Regulations. Any breach(es) of such guidelines may render the
    Member in breach of these Regulations.
    2.2.3 Without prejudice to the generality of Regulation 2.2.2, each Constituent
    Body shall include in its own rules a rule stating that each of its members is
    bound by the RFU’s Rules, these Regulations, the Laws of the Game and the
    World Rugby Regulations relating to the Game and that any breach thereof
    shall be a breach of the rules of the Constituent Body and shall be dealt with
    under the powers contained in its rules or in accordance with powers which
    have been delegated to it by the RFU.
