The Best Rugby Jerseys 2021

first_img The Best Rugby Jerseys 2021With international rugby back on our screens for the first time since March, there’s never been a better time to wear your colours and support your team, even if we’re having to do that from our homes instead of Twickenham or the Principality Stadium for the time being. And there are plenty of options for fans who perhaps don’t want to don a full-on replica jersey, and instead invoke the spirit of an era of rugby long gone, where cotton shirts, long sleeves and folding collars were the order of the day, and the cut of the design was a little more, shall we say, forgiving for those of us who don’t spend every spare moment down the gym… Related: Best replica rugby shirts 2021These ‘classic’ shirts as they’re often known are also much easier to get away with in scenarios where you might feel a little out of place wearing a proper replica jersey, and many of the official ones borrow cool design cues from the on-field jersey. Let’s take a look at the best rugby jerseys to buy for you…The Best Rugby Jerseys 2021Umbro England 2020/21 Classic HomeCredit: England Rugby Store+ Loose fitting cotton design+ Inspired by the test jersey– Prominent main sponsor For many fans even the looser fitting polyester replica jerseys are still not what they want from a rugby shirt – whether it’s for tradition or just pure comfort, for some fans a cotton long-sleeved design is all that will do. And that’s where this new Umbro England Classic shirt comes in, with the basic vibe of the on-pitch version recreated in classic jersey style, complete with a proper old school collar, long sleeves and that all-important red rose. Buy now from England Rugby Store for £55Buy now from Umbro for £55Buy from Lovell Rugby for £55Canterbury Ireland 2019/20 Rugby Vapodri Classic HomeCredit: Pro:Direct Rugby+ Two-tone classic collar+ Moisture-wicking Vapodri material– Last season’s jersey If you’re after a more casual Ireland jersey and you don’t mind it being a little out of date, then last season’s Vapodri Classic home jersey might very well be the perfect option for you, and is still widely available at many retailers. Unlike most other ‘classic’ shirts, the Ireland shirt is made of Vapodri material, meaning it offers the moisture-wicking benefits of an artificial fabric with the feel of cotton, and the two-tone collar is certainly a bit different too. Buy from Pro:Direct Rugby for £39Buy from Lovell Rugby for £30Macron Scotland 2020/21 Cotton SS ReplicaCredit: Rugby Store+ Subtle sponsor logos+ Tartan rear panel– Short sleeves not the most classic look Macron takes a different tactic with its classic jerseys than other suppliers, and it’s one we think will go down well with more traditionally minded fans that don’t love the giant sponsor logos across the front of modern test jerseys. Instead, this cotton short-sleeve design shifts the main sponsor up into a small area below the crest, giving it a much more old-school look than many other cotton jerseys. Buy from Pro:Direct Rugby for £62Buy from Lovell Rugby for £65Macron Wales 2020/21 Classic LS ReplicaCredit: Rugby Store+ Minimalist main sponsor for more classic look+ Classic long sleeve design with fold-over collar– Dragon detail might not be for everyone + Sleek, classic look+ Details from test jersey– Short sleeves not to everyone’s tasteThe All Blacks jersey is the most iconic in all of rugby, and one of the most recognisable jerseys in sport, but Adidas’s super hi-tech approach to New Zealand’s on-field jerseys in recent years certainly aren’t trying to win over traditionalists in the style stakes, but that’s what this supporter’s design is for.A classic black rugby jersey with an old-fashioned fold over collar is good for everyone, and while fans of long sleeves are out of luck here, it’s still a very classy number, though the thin white stripe around the collar (designed to ape the similar effect on the 2019/20 All Blacks on-field jersey) might not be for everyone.Buy now from Sports Direct for £13.50ASICS South Africa Springboks Premium Long Sleeve ShirtCredit: ASICSThe Boks became one of the feel-good stories of 2019 as they turned around two years of terrible form to capture the Rugby World Cup under the leadership fo Rassie Erasmus and Siya Kolisi, and this official long-sleeved jersey is a fittingly restrained way for fans to continue to cheer on the Boks wherever and whenever they might be playing next.Produced by Japanese brand ASICS, this shirt keeps things as traditional as you like with the iconic dark green jersey paired with a 70s-style large gold button-up collar. The maker’s logo and the SA Rugby and Springbok logos are all stitched on, so you know this is a jersey designed to be a wardrobe staple for years to come.Buy now from Amazon for £39.99Gilbert Barbarians Heritage Long Sleeve ShirtCredit: England Rugby Store+ Iconic hooped design+ BaBaas values sleeve detail– Real danger you’ll get called up for the squad if you wear itThe Barbarians concept is one of the most unique and wonderful things about rugby union, and while recent events haven’t been wonderful for the Babaas’ credibility, the invitational side’s swashbuckling style has created some of the most memorable and exhilarating moments in the history of the sport.The Baa-Baas are currently supplied by Gilbert and this classic jersey brings to mind all those classic Barbarians tries we’ve watched a thousand times on YouTube. A lovely touch is the legend, ‘Flair, Courage, Spirit, Passion’ on the sleeves – the Barbarians ethos in a nutshell. As with Scotland’s Macron cotton replica jersey, the Wales option takes the smart move of minimising the sponsor logo for a more subtle look, and if anything looks even more restrained than its Scottish counterpart. Related: Best deals on British & Irish Lions shirtsLike the Scotland shirt it’s also available in long- and short-sleeved flavours, with the the big difference from the test jersey being the welcome presence of an old-school collar to complete the retro look, it sports all the design touches of the on-field jersey, including the polarising massive embossed dragon on the rear. Buy now from Lovell Rugby for £67Buy now from Pro:Direct Rugby for £66.99Adidas All Blacks 2019/20 Supporter JerseyCredit: Adidas LATEST RUGBY WORLD MAGAZINE SUBSCRIPTION DEALScenter_img Buy now from England Rugby Store for £75Can’t get to the shops?

Taylor’s Thunder slump to second defeat

first_imgSYDNEY, Australia (CMC) – There was little joy for West Indies star Stafanie Taylor or her Sydney Thunder side as they slumped to their second loss in three outings in the Women’s Big Bash here yesterday.Playing at Blacktown International Sportspark, Thunder were restricted to a meagre 115 for eight off their 20 overs and Brisbane Heat – without Taylor’s injured Windies teammate Deandra Dottin – cruised to their target with seven balls remaining, to pull off a comfortable nine-wicket victory.Despite the loss, the reigning champions remained second in the standings on nine points, just one point adrift of leaders and city rivals, Sydney Sixers.Heat, meanwhile, moved into fifth spot on eight points, in a tightly bunched top six separated by a mere two points.Opting to bat first, Thunder struggled from the outset and only captain Alex Blackwell with 43 from 49 balls displayed any real enterprise.Taylor, without a half-century in the tournament, struck two fours in nine before becoming the first wicket to fall in the third over.Blackwell helped put on 32 for the fourth wicket with Nicola Carey (16) to leave Thunder on 80 for three in the 15th over but five wickets tumbled for 31 runs at the end as their challenge fizzled.In reply, opener Beth Mooney struck an unbeaten 75 from 66 deliveries to energise the Heat run chase.She put on 63 for the first wicket with Kirby Short (13) and a further 54 in an unbroken second-wicket partnership with Jess Jonassen (20 not out).last_img read more


first_imgJack MurrayInishowen Sinn Féin councillor Jack Murray has made a final appeal to voters saying that Friday’s elections had become much more important than parish pump politics and asked the people of Inishowen to make this election a referendum on austerity and vote for change.Cllr Murray said: “Over the last three years I have worked tirelessly for the people of Inishowen. This work included:“I established the unfinished estates working group in the peninsula. This led to the successful completion of many unfinished estates such as Ard Ban and while another motion will also successfully fix the sewerage problem in 3 estates in Bridgend this summer. “I successfully prevented the council from accessing personal information to track those boycotting the household charge.“Securing investment on many roads throughout Inishowen in order to improve road safety, including a road crossing in Muff which (despite many delays) will go ahead in June.“I opposed all unfair budgets in Donegal County Council despite the risk of losing my seat in doing so.“I have been an outspoken critic of St Patrick’s Day junkets to America. “I have helped countless people gain improvements to their council homes and helped many people overturn incorrect decisions on social welfare, carer’s and medical card decisions.“I have also secured thousands of euro to dozens of community and sporting groups throughout Inishowen.“However, this local election has become much more than parish pump politics. It is an opportunity to have an impact on national government policy. It is on opportunity for the people to say, en masse, that enough is enough. This election can become a referendum on austerity.“I would ask that you use your vote to oppose water charges and the property tax. Say that forced emigration is not a solution to the unemployment crisis and that it is not good enough for Donegal to be the only county in the state without access to rail. Say that we want that A5 so that we can have a dual carriageway connection to Dublin like every other region in Ireland.“We should voice our anger that there is not a single cancer centre for excellence, in this state, above the Galway-Dublin line despite there being 8 below it. “We have been ignored for so long by successive governments who have been supported by their colleagues in the council. This our chance to stand up for Donegal.“We now need a strong collective voice which says that there is a better way. This can only be done by voting Sinn Fein. We are the only candidates who are asking for a mandate for a credible and fairer economic alternative.“I hope that the people of Inishowen can endorse that alternative next Friday and I would appeal to voters to vote for myself, Ciaran Mclaughlin and Albert Doherty in the local elections and vote for Matt Carthy in the European election.”ELECTION 2014: ‘LET’S MAKE FRIDAY A REFERENDUM ON AUSTERITY’ SAYS MURRAY was last modified: May 19th, 2014 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Stepney believed Gordon Banks was a gentleman

first_imgThe former England national team player talked how he missed Banks in the 1970 World Cup last match and the kind of person he was.The England national team was knocked out of the 1970 FIFA World Cup in Mexico by West Germany.That day, goalkeeper Gordon Banks did not play as he was sick in his hotel room.“The day of the quarter-final we went for breakfast, then for a walk. The game was at midday, it was 100 degrees, it was the turn of Peter Bonetti [Chelsea goalkeeper] to be the substitute goalkeeper, not mine, and when Alf [Ramsey] named the team he named Gordon and that seemed to be it,” former Three Lions footballer Alex Stepney told The Guardian.“The FIFA rules of those times were that if you weren’t involved you had to go and sit in the stand. So I went back to my room to get my camera and that’s when I found that Gordon was bad and being sick in the toilet.”“I became a sub, Peter Bonetti was now selected. Yet when I went back to my room after the match Gordon thought we’d won because we were 2-0 up [Banks was watching a delayed television broadcast],” he explained.“I had to tell him the bad news. I held up my fingers to indicate the score [2-3] and he just couldn’t believe it. I think it made him worse!”Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“Don’t forget in those days we didn’t have goalkeeper coaches,” he remembered.“Basically what you did you did for yourself and when I worked with him we expressed ideas between us – that’s what it was all about.”“He inspired me so much regarding how I played: I’d like to think I wasn’t a flashy keeper, either. I learned a lot from him, working and playing against him,” Stepney continued.“Gordon was such a gentleman and an absolute one-off. His death is a very sad loss to the game.”“He is England’s best-ever goalkeeper – he won the World Cup, as simple as that, and 53 years on he’s still the only keeper who has done that,” he said.“At the end of the day I had Gordon Banks in front of me regarding England and you cannot argue with that.”last_img read more
