After over 10 years with Canterbury the Wallabies have announced they will switch to Kooga.
This jersey is the first to be produced under a four-year deal that will continue until the end of 2013 between Australian Rugby Union and KooGa.
The deal has been signed by Kooga Australia. So far only the Authentic players shirt, Players Polo and Players shorts are going to be released in the UK.
Technologically advanced – with materials including carbon fibre and hydrosteel used in the manufacturing process. Meaning Essentially all-gold, the new Qantas Wallabies jersey has been labelled “virtually indestructible” while also possessing qualities that will significantly enhance a player’s comfort levels.
“The unstinting efforts and enthusiasm of KooGa have been keys to ensuring the Qantas Wallabies have a playing kit for 2010 that we are all delighted and proud to reveal,” said ARU Managing Director and CEO John O’Neill.
“The new jersey is back to that solid, old gold look just like the first replica I wore as a little kid supporting the team in the early ’90s,” enthused jersey model Berrick Barnes.
“It’s good to have the traditional look to it. There’s nothing better than switching on to Wimbledon on TV and watching fans supporting Aussies in their Wallaby jerseys.”
The shirt will be first worn in an international program opening with a Test against Fiji in Canberra, followed by a two-Test series against England and a Brisbane showdown with Ireland.
The range will be here in Mid June and will be available to pre order at the start of April.
Here at Lovell Rugby we love the shirt. The bright Gold used is clean and simple and sure to be a winner.
