The Great Britain Rugby League jersey. A vintage inspired design. Included in the design is the Great Britain Rugby League logo.
Ellis Rugby have joined forces with the Rugby League Lions Association, in order to produce a licensed heritage collection; inspired by the greats of the game. It is hoped that further ranges will be added in order to create a full catalogue of Great Britain Collections. Based around the jersey worn in the late-1980s and early-1990s, the design has allowed for the retention of classic design features as well as the introduction of new ones.
In this time period, coach Malcolm Reilly led a stirring revival of Great Britain. With the hope of restoring national pride in the jersey. This is because of heavy Test series defeats by Australia in the early-80s. With legends of the game such as Ellery Hanley, Martin Offiah, Shaun Edwards, Andy Gregory and Garry Schofield at the peak of their powers. While restoring pride in the jersey, Great Britain became a great force of the game.
Profits from every sale donated to the Rugby League Lions Association, which works closely with the charity Rugby League Cares on its reunions and welfare programmes.
Manufactured from satin touch 100% cotton the Great Britain Rugby League jersey features detailed embroidery on the crest. Other features include herringbone finish on the vents and velvet tape on the neck opening.
