The history of the productAUSTRALIA 1961
THE FIRST AUSTRALIAN "GOLD" JERSEY WAS WORN IN 1961 DURING A TOUR IN SOUTH AFRICA.
The yellow jersey was chosen to distinguish the Wallabies from the Springboks who were playing in green. If the Australians are great rugby players and far from a joke on the field, the endless history of their jersey can make you smile. Indeed, Australia has played with jerseys of various colors and emblems. This is mainly due to the quarrel between the two main rugby regions, Queensland and New South Wales.
The Australians therefore sometimes played in sky blue and sometimes in brown, or in blue jerseys with brown stripes. Then in green from 1929. But to avoid confusion during the meetings with South Africa they used the sky blue. From 1961 the gold was adopted and in 1976 the Australians decided to use green!
