Description

The Ellis Rugby Welsh Polo Shirt. The design of this Polo Shirt incorporates the vintage Welsh Crest as well as Ellis Rugby branding. The vintage Welsh Crest features on the left chest of this Polo with Ellis Rugby branding on the arm.

Rugby Union took root in Wales in 1850, when Reverend Rowland Williams became Vice-Principal at St David’s College, Lampeter, where he introduced the sport. The first Welsh club, Neath was formed in 1871.

Wales played their first international on 19 February 1881; organised by Newport’s Richard Mullock, Wales played against England, losing by seven goals, one drop goal and six tries to nil (8–0).

Wales initially found it difficult to beat England at Rugby; however in 1890, after seven attempts, Wales were finally victorious over England. This victory would prove to be the kick start Wales were looking for as they went on to dominate the sport from 1893. The Welsh team was unbeatable between March 1907 and January 1910.

The Welsh team’s performance suffered during the 1920’s as many of the players left the country in search of work. Wales returned to form during the 30’s with a spectacular win over England at Twickenham. Since then Wales has maintained its position as one of the top Rugby Nations.

Manufactured from 100% chunky pique cotton. This Welsh Rugger Polo features detailed embroidery on the vintage Welsh Crest and contrast inner placket, arms and collar stand. Alsdo included on this garment is herringbone detail on the side vents and velvet tape on the neck opening. In addition the Polo Shirt features subtle Ellis Rugby branding on the collar stand and tone on tone logo on the arm.

The Ellis Rugby Welsh Polo Shirt is available in sizes S – 4XL.
