Wallabies unveil new heritage jersey
IN THE SPOTLIGHT: A new-look Wallabies jersey for the 2018 international season has been unveiled, featuring a traditional twist on a modern design.
The jersey's design draws inspiration from the past to take the Wallabies into the future with subtle highlights of the new design reminding players and fans of great Wallabies teams of yesteryear.
The new strip will debut when the Wallabies run out for the first of three blockbuster Test matches on home soil against Ireland at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on June 9.
The 2018 jersey sees the return of a traditional collar construction as a nod to the teams of the late 80’s, while an embossed logo on the shoulder serves as a reminder of the dominant Wallabies sides of the mid to late 90’s.
Combining a heritage look and feel with state-of-the-art construction features and fabric, the jersey is made with hard-wearing flatlock seams, strategically placed mesh panels, and high-performance body fabric.
Besides the iconic all-gold body, traditional elements such as embroidered logos and a woven Wallabies coat of arms badge have been retained on the new strip as the primary features of a Wallabies jersey which set it apart from the rest.
