The  1800s saw the creation of invitation rugby teams. William Percy Carpmael, had been part of the Cambridge team which had undertaken a tour of Yorkshire in 1884. Inspired by the culture behind short rugby tours he organised his first tour in 1889, which was followed by an 1890 tour with an invitational team calling themselves the Southern Nomads.

This was the original Invitation XV.

This Polo shirt is manufactured from 100% chunky pique cotton. Featured on the Invitation XV Polo shirt is the skull and crossbones crest as well as detailed embroidery, located on the crest. In addition to this the design features contrast inner placket, arm rib and collar stand. Subtle Ellis Rugby branding also appears on the design in the form of detailed embroidery on the back of the Polo. In addition the Ellis Rugby logo features on the arm of the Polo shirt.
