The Wallabies have unveiled their all-new jersey for the upcoming Rugby World Cup, with flyhalf Quade Cooper playing a significant role in its design. Produced by Asics, the jersey showcases the tournament’s logo and features the coat of arms of Australia on the chest. Green stripes adorn the arms and collar, adding to the striking look of the jersey. Fans can catch the 2023 Super Rugby Pacific final on Stan Sport, the home of rugby, where all matches will be streamed ad-free, live, and on demand.
Unlike last year’s jersey, which highlighted a green indigenous design, this year’s version boasts an embossed pattern on the shirt front. The raised area serves not only as a visual element but also has functional benefits. Cooper explained that the grip on the front of the jersey is essential for catching the ball, especially in hot temperatures when players sweat more. Additionally, the fabric is breathable and flexible, making it more difficult for opponents to grab onto.
Fellow Wallabies player Jordan Petaia commended the functional improvements of the jersey, emphasizing the importance of breathability and stretchiness for players, particularly during intense scrums. Another subtle detail of the jersey is the Chojo Line print, symbolizing the team’s commitment to competing at the highest level of rugby.
This year also marks the Wallabies’ first Rugby World Cup campaign featuring a First Nations design. The player numbers and inside collar will showcase the artwork of Kamilaroi/Gamilaraay artist Dennis Golding. Taniela Tupou, who is currently recovering from an Achilles tendon injury, expressed his excitement about the new jersey and his determination to earn a spot on the team.
The jersey also pays tribute to the Wallabies’ past successes, with the inclusion of the Web Ellis Trophy and the years when they won the Rugby World Cup. Wearing this jersey would be an honor for Tupou, but he remains focused on his rehabilitation and making a strong case for his selection in the Wallabies squad.
