Description

Extremely Rare 1875-6 England Rugby International White Jersey: White Collar and buttons with the splendid large red rose and green petal badge retaining much of its colour - worn by Walter Greg, Manchester RFC player who won two caps in 1875-6, playing against Ireland (for the first time in Ireland) and against Scotland at The Oval, London, with England winning both matches. An excellent example and one of very few surviving shirts from this first decade of international rugby football. A gem.
