Description

The Huddersfield Rugby league Vintage T-Shirt. A classic design inspired by the inaugural Huddersfield Rugby League match in 1895. The print features on the front chest and Ellis Rugby branding features on the arm of this T-Shirt.

Huddersfield rugby club was formed in 1876. By 1879 players from the club were beginning to represent England in international matches.  This international game was to end in a draw against Scotland on March the 10th.

Huddersfield’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% cotton, the Huddersfield Rugby League Vintage T-Shirt features a stylish print to the front chest. Also included on this garment is herringbone detail on the side vents and velvet tape on the neck opening. In addition Ellis Rugby branding features in the design of this T-Shirt on the arm.
