Australia Vintage rugby jersey 1991.

The Australian rugby team won the 1991 World Cup held in the United Kingdom with this iconic jersey. This World Cup was the first one organised in Europe. England was the main organizing nation, with matches also held in Scotland, Wales, France and Ireland (the Five Nations countries at the time).

Under the leadership of David Campese, the captain of the Australian rugby team, the Wallabies' progression in the championship was impeccable, winning all their matches. Moreover David Campese was chosen the best player of the tournament and dominated the ranking of more tries scored with 6. In the semifinal against the All Blacks, Campese created what is considered one of the historic “assistances”, allowing Tim Horan to score the second try of Australia.

The 1991 final took place at Twickenham’s Temple; the wallabies were facing the host nation England. The Australians won the game, 6-12, for exasperation of the English crowd that saw their dream of becoming champions in their own country disappear. With this victory, Australia began its extraordinary decade, winning two of the three World Cups. The Wallabies won the William Webb Ellis Cup, which was offered by Queen Elizabeth II of England.

Australian rugby managed to wait for great team that gathered an exceptional generation of rugby players during the 90s. Players like Nick Farr Jones, David Campese and Michael Lynagh gave the wallabies a great rugby decade. In a country where many sports are practiced, these players managed to make rugby a sport very popular with Australians.

Vintage Australia rugby polo of high quality, 100% cotton with high grammage. This rugby polo faithfully reproduces the original model with which the team of the antipodes was proclaimed champion of its first World Cup title. Rugby Polo and vintage fashion for rugby fans; enjoy a cool third half.
