A vintage reproduction of the classic 1950 international New Zealand rugby shirt
Made from 100% cotton, this Arthur Hughes jersey is a study of the original worn by the New Zealand Hooker.

George Nepia (1905 - 1986)
‘1950 All Blacks ’
Born in Wairou, Nepia attended his local agricultural college and showed an early flare for rugby. He was selected for his hometown club of Hawkes Bay in 1922 – one of the most formidable teams in the country and the current holders of the Ranfurly Shield or ‘Log o’ Wood Trophy’ (New Zealand’s domestic championship).
Originally favoured as a winger, he was later tempted to ‘second-five-eighth’ or inside-centre in pounds and pence.
