Bespoke jersey unveiled for Brisbane Global Rugby Tens


By NSW Waratahs Media unit

The NSW Waratahs have unveiled a bespoke jersey which the team will wear at the Brisbane Global Rugby Tens tournament next February.

Designed by player and training apparel supplier Canterbury, the jersey encompasses a number of significant landmarks in across the front including the NSW Waratahs’ home ground, Allianz Stadium, the Harbour Bridge and the Byron Bay Lighthouse.

Also amongst these iconic landmarks are a number of pillars containing the names of regional areas of NSW, which some of our current squad members hail from, including Dubbo (Tom Robertson), Newcastle (Harry Johnson-Holmes), Tamworth (Paddy Ryan), Bathurst and Coffs Harbour.

NSW Waratahs utility back Bryce Hegarty said: “The jersey has the pillars that represents where certain boys are from in the State. It’s a loud jersey and the boys love it.”

“The pillars represent the inclusiveness of us as players throughout NSW.

Hegarty said the tournament will be a great opportunity for the younger squad members to gain exposure to this level of competition.

“The Brisbane Global Tens is a great spectacle for the fans. It’s a new competition, it’s in its second year and you get to play a bit of a different style of rugby,” he said.

“It is a game for the quicker man and for some of the younger guys coming into the team, it’s a perfect opportunity for them to put their hand up and have a crack.

“We are really looking forward to it and playing in this jersey, and representing the Waratahs and the State of New South Wales.”

The bespoke jersey will not be available for purchase in retail. However, all match jerseys will be auctioned off at the conclusion of the tournament with all proceeds going to player development pathways in NSW.
