The highly anticipated Wallabies jersey for 2021 and beyond has arrived.
The Herald got a photo of the headband that will now be worn by the national team following a vote earlier this year to find a permanent color.
Australian rugby royalty gathered in January to vote on a shade of gold that resonated with the public. The squad, made up of former Wallabies coaches and captains, chose the same colored jersey worn by the 1991 World Cup-winning Australian team, led by Nick Farr-Jones and coached by Bob Dwyer.
The color of the famous strip has changed several times over the past decades and Rugby Australia wants to have consistency in the future.
While the design will be tweaked in the years to come, the color will not.
RA has yet to officially launch the jersey, but that is expected in the coming weeks.
RA President Hamish McLennan said: “I am really pleased with the result as we continue to put the DNA of rugby in Australia back into the game.
“The players who have seen it realize that it is a magic jersey. We have confirmed the color. It never changes.
Eight jerseys were on display at Crown Sydney, with the 1991 gang winning a final vote on the 1984 jersey Australia wore on their unbeaten tour of the UK and Ireland.
