An Introduction to British Isles 1971 Vintage Rugby Jersey

The Ellis Rugby British Lions Retro Rugby Shirt is inspired by the jersey worn by the side on the 1971 tour to New Zealand, captained by John Dawes.

The Lions team of 1971 stands out above all others. They went to New Zealand and - as part of a mammoth 26 game tour over 3 months - shocked the All Blacks and won the series. Their victory, by two Tests to one with one drawn was an incredible achievement.. 

In the squad were the likes of JPR Williams, Barry John, Ian McLauchlan and Willie John McBride, some legendary Lions names.
