Classic Rugby Jerseys

This is a new blog to talk about old rugby jerseys. We will be talking about vintage rugby shirts from around the world and how they seemed so much better than today

Heavier, thicker and more manlier than todays’ skimpy tops and made to last

Take the Springboks jersey from 1996/97 made by Nike, seen above, this feels very hard wearing, but also looks good with a Nike swoosh on the collar. Finished off with a band of yellow on the cuffs

If you are looking for one of these, see link below
