Description

The Huddersfield Rugby League Vintage Polo Shirt. Inspiration for the design of this Polo shirt has been taken from the Challenge Cup Final that took place in 1933.

The thirty-third Challenge Cup Final held at Wembley was played between Huddersfield and Warrington on the 6th May 1933. A record crowd saw Huddersfield emerging 21-17 winners and lifting the trophy for a record fourth time.

The formation of Huddersfield Rugby Club took place in 1876. The club’s first Yorkshire Cup triumph took place in the 1889-90 season. The opposition for the final was Wakefield Trinity, a crowd of around 20,000 was present at the match.

In 1895 Huddersfield were founder members of the Northern Rugby Football Union, (later the Rugby Football League) which split from the Union code. The Club played its first game under the Northern Union against Wakefield Trinity on the 14th September, under the captaincy of Harry Lodge. Nearly 5,000 spectators watched the club triumph by 10 points to nil.

The 1910-11 season was to be the first time that Huddersfield became champions of the Yorkshire League. In the Challenger Cup Huddersfield would prove to be undefeatable every time that they reached the final. The club’s first defeat in the Challenge Cup final was in 1935 when Castleford beat Huddersfield 11-8.

In total Huddersfield have won the Challenge Cup 6 times, the Yorkshire Cup 12 times as well as the Championship 7 times. The club also won the National League Cup in 2002

Manufactured from 100% chunky pique cotton. The Huddersfield Rugby League Vintage Polo shirt features detailed embroidery as well as appliqué badge. In addition inner contrast placket, arm rib and collar stand also feature on this garment.

This Polo shirt is available in sizes S – 3XL.
