Replica Rhodesian Rugby Jerseys

We have researched and copied as close as possible to the 'real thing' as used in the late 1970's. Other copies on the market contain errors relating to the badge and the stripes. Our jersey is the closest that you will get to an original.

The initial custom designed fabric and jerseys were produced by Lane Walker Rudkin International (LWR), a New Zealand based company. LWR has since closed down and their subsidiary company, Canterbury Clothing Company (CCC) has taken on our design and are our current supplier of these unique jerseys.

In 1898 the first national Rhodesian side toured South Africa. We can only see from black and white photos that the strip was dark in colour. In the early 1900's the Green and White hoops were introduced. It was not until the late 1970's that the Lion over the Tusk was actually sewn onto the jersey, the first time that any insignia other than player numbers was worn.

Feedback to date from around the world is most favourable regarding size and likeness to the original.

Material is a poly /cotton mix and some shrinkage is to be expected.

When ordering please send us your chest and if you want short or long sleeve. We stock sizes covering chest size:

  • Medium = 45 inch / 114 cm up to
  • XXXL = 59 inch / 150 cm
