Invented in the 1840s.
There’s no American football without rugby (sorry).
The padding is minimal. Teeth are optional. Noses are meant to be broken. Organized fighting is legal. The pace is breakneck. With positions like “lock,” “hooker,” and “scrumhalf,” it’s hard to tell if you’re watching a sport or an English heist flick. The All Blacks of New Zealand have more celebrity fans than “conscious uncoupling.” And best of all, even the big guys get to handle the ball. What’s not to like?
Rugby Jersey (No. 6606). Football (the soccer kind) is synonymous with vertical stripes, rugby with horizontal. Ours is constructed of a soft and durable cotton. Woven twill collar and placket. Rubberized buttons. Ribbed cuffs. Underarm gussets. Side vents. Unlike in American football, women play rugby, too, and are just as tough as the guys. Imported.
*Model is 6' 1" and is wearing a size medium shirt.
