Prince A. S. Obolensky was a Rurikid prince whose family fled Russia after the Russian Revolution of 1917, settling in London.

He was known as “The Flying Prince” and excelled in rugby, gaining two rugby blues representing Oxford University. In 1936 he scored 2 tries on his England debut in a 13-0 victory over the NZ. The game was the first time that England had beaten New Zealand in a rugby match. England would then be unable to defeat New Zealand again until 1973. During 1936 The Flying Prince would gain 3 more caps playing for England. On the outbreak of war, Obolensky joined the RAF. Tragically, on 29 March 1940, a day after being recalled to the England squad he was killed during training when his Plane overshot the runway on Martlesham Heath, Suffolk. He was only 24 years old.

The Flying Prince Rugger design features the English Rose as a smart appliqué and the vintage Oxford crown on the front chest along with Ellis Rugby branding on the arm. We have also included a stylish ‘XV’ patch with decorative stitching on the right chest.

Manufactured from Satin touch 100% cotton, The Flying Prince Rugger features herringbone detail on side vents in addition to velvet tape on neck opening.
