Wallabies reveal RWC jersey - guess where their logo is?

2015-06-10 12:07

Cape Town - The Wallabies have revealed their 2015 Rugby World Cup jersey - and you'll never guess where their logo is!

Much was made of the positioning of the Springbok on the left arm sleeve when South Africa's jersey for the tournament in England and Wales was unveiled last week.

Fans were left fuming at the relatively small size of the famed Springbok logo - as well as the fact it wasn't featured on the front.

The South African Rugby Union (SARU) were quick to point out that in fact Rugby World Cup regulations didn't allow for the logo to appear on the front - and that it was only a World Cup policy and would return to its normal spot after the tournament concludes on October 31.

ASICS, the apparel sponsors of the Springboks, are also sponsors of the Wallabies, and the two versions of their jerseys for the World Cup bear a similiar design to those to be worn by Heyneke Meyer's men - in 100 days time.
