The history of this rugby

product history image

Argentina 1965

It was during a South African tour in 1965 that the Argentinians earned the nickname «Pumas ».

Legend has it that  a journalist called the Argentinian team by their symbolic animal but got it wrong and mistook a jaguar for a puma !

Even though the spotted coat of a jaguar looks nothing like the all black coat of a puma, the journalist’s mistake stuck forever as the Argentinian’s nickname.

By the way, the tour was a success for the newly named  « Pumas »  who beat the  « Junior Springbox » team for the first time.

SPORTS d’EPOQUE has reproduced the Argentinian jersey of 1965.

This jersey is proudly handmade in France.
