Australia’s Rugby Union officials have announced that the Indigenous Wallabies jersey will become a regular sight after a huge amount of public support for the new Jersey.
Early reports are coming out in the media today that Australia’s Rugby officials have let it slide that they’ll be meeting this week to discuss not if, but when we will see the Wallabies playing in the Indigenous Wallabies jersey after a huge amount of public support was received from fans across Australia and overseas.
We can be sure that it will happen at least once a year but ARU boss, Bill Pulver admitted that the pressure is so immense that there could be a decision that sees the jersey become an alternate playing jersey. Demand for the jersey has also been overwhelming. The jersey is already out of stock via the Wallabies online store however there are still some sizes left from the Asics online store. The jersey has also drawn high profile support from Patty Mills and Anthony Mundine.
With only a couple of hours to go until the historic #BledisloeCup Test, the Qantas #Wallabies will don the first ever Indigenous jersey. We look back on the week leading into the event and what it means to those involved. #AUSvNZL
