Show how long you’ve supported the Kiwis when you wear this Vintage New Zealand 1960 Rugby League Shirt. The New Zealand national rugby league team, also known as the Kiwis, has represented New Zealand in international rugby league since 1907. The New Zealand Kiwis are currently second in the RLIF World Rankings. A New Zealand side first played in a 1907 professional rugby tour which pre-dated the birth of rugby league football in the Southern Hemisphere, making it the second oldest national side after England. New Zealand have competed in every Rugby League World Cup since the first in 1954, reaching three consecutive tournament finals between 2000-2013. In 2008, New Zealand won the World Cup for the first time. This vintage shirt commemorates the 1960-1963 era. During the 1961-63 era, New Zealand won seven out of ten test matches, including a 2-0 series win over Great Britain in 1962, then considered the top rugby league nation in the world. During that time their best performance was their record-breaking 19-0 win over Great Britain at Carlaw Park which was only the second time the British side had been held scoreless. This shirt is 100% cotton and features detailed embroidery on the crest. Other features include herringbone finish on the vents and velvet tape on the neck opening.
