South African T-Shirt


SKU: N/A Category:


The Ellis Rugby South African T-Shirt. A classic design incorporating the vintage South African Crest as well as Ellis Rugby branding. The vintage South African Crest features on the left chest of this T-Shirt and the Ellis Rugby branding features on the arm.

South Africa’s first introduction to Rugby Football was in 1875.  However the sport didn’t catch on until a former England international player arrived in Cape Town in 1878. The strong support for Football soon shifted to Rugby. South Africa’s first international game of Rugby Football took place in 1891 when Britain toured the country. The first South African win in an international game took place in 1896. South Africa won 5-0 against Britain in the second British tour. Britain would tour South Africa one more time in 1903, before South Africa would embark on their first tour of the British Isles.

Paul Roos was the captain of the first South African team to tour the British Isles. The team was largely dominated by players from Western Province, and took place during 1906–07. They played 29 matches; including Tests against all four Home Nations.

Manufactured from satin touch 100% cotton, the South African Rugger T-Shirt features detailed embroidery on the vintage South African Crest. Also featured on this garment is herringbone detail on the vents and velvet tape on the neck opening.  In addition a complex ‘6’ applique patch on the back with the Ellis Rugby branding on the arm.

The Ellis Rugby South African T-Shirt is available in sizes S – 4XL.

Please note this T-Shirt is not a licensed product, nor is it a playing shirt. It is inspired by the national heroes who have played the wonderful game of Rugby Football.
