The history of this jersey

product history image

A 9 month tour of The United Kingdom, Ireland and North America

This team was ordered to do a battle cry similar to the Maoris' Haka, which they did but with little enthusiasm

32 victories in 38 matches played and a Olympic gold medal versus the only team in the competition, "Cornwall" representing England !!! The Wallabies played in blue, with a Waratah flower over their heart. It was the colours and emblem of New South Wales.  At this time, there was no Australian federation, it is probably because this region was the most developped rugbywise that this jersey was chosen. The word Australia was embroidered under the flower to show that the jersey was also the national team.
