Launched during the last Soccer World Cup and in the midst of the American football season, we came to realize that our "Rugby; a fine disregard to the rules of football" tee took a little slap at both sports. As rugby players, we resist the comparison to either.
According to rugby folklore and an inscription upon a plaque at the Rugby School, it's said that rugby was founded when William Webb Ellis "who with fine disregard to the rules of football as played in his time first took the ball in his arms and ran with it thus originating the distinctive feature of the rugby game."
Navy blue and white print on the front of a charcoal gray 100% cotton heavyweight Gildan tee; also available in a cardinal red version.
In honor of the defiant roots of the Game, don our "Fine Disregard" tee proudly.
