Retro Rugby Jersey

Post by axxon » Tue Aug 27, 2013 8:05 pm

Can anyone help me locate a retro Wigan rugby jersey 1960s / 1970s? I know they still sell them somewhere as I saw at least two brand new ones at Wembley on Saturday. Classic broad cherry & white hoops, no sponsor name on the front, collar & buttons and long sleeves? Its driving me crazy trying to find one!! God how I wish I would have asked the bloke sat opposite on the train where he got his from!! I blame the Guinness!!

Wigan RL Shop used to sell them approximately 2 seasons ago. Not sure they still stock them but try there.

They simply did not sell in huge numbers so they were discontinued. Try Leigh RLFC, they produced a very similar jersey. Halbro is they still exist, not sure re spelling or Cotton Traders.

As CP said, they did them through the club shop but don't have them on the website now. However, they do have some based on the 1985 final shirt but with no sponsor - might suit your needs?
