Shirts that require logo embroidery or number patches may take 1-2 weeks to process and so delivery may be slower than normal. Due to high demand and the need for facemasks our embroiderer has a backlog of work and so shirt embroidery may be delayed as a result.

We thank you for your support and patience while we prepare your orders for delivery. We will update you once your order is ready to be shipped.

Olympic sprinter Ken Jones scored both of Wales’ tries in a brutal 8-6 victory over England at Twickenham.

“It was just about the toughest, fightingest rugby duel there has been since deliberate hacking was abolished in 1866,” was the view of the Daily Express. “There was more punishment dished out and taken in any five minutes of Saturday’s Twickenham match than one sees in 15 rounds of professional boxing.”

There were so many stoppages to patch players up that there were 13 minutes of added time at the end of the second half.
