The vintage New Zealand Crest features on the left chest of this Polo Shirt with Ellis Rugby branding on the arm.

The  name ‘All Blacks’ dates from the first tour of the UK by a New Zealand national rugby team, the Originals, in 1905-06.

According to Billy Wallace, one of the members of the Originals, a London newspaper quoted – ‘the New Zealanders played as if they were “all blacks” – which in fact, should have been – “all backs”. This simple typographical error is to blame for the now famous team name.

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

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

Please note this Polo is not a licensed product, nor is it a playing shirt. It is inspired by the national heroes who have played the wonderful game of Rugby Football.
