Hall of Fame legends celebrated in fantastic new apparel range

Rugby League Cares and Ellis Rugby have teamed up to create a fantastic range of clothing celebrating some of the greatest players in the sport’s history.

The Rugby League Hall of Fame range features garments inspired by the club and international jerseys worn by all-time greats Billy Boston MBE, Roger Millward MBE, Malcolm Reilly OBE and Neil Fox MBE at the peak of their careers.

The historic jerseys and polo shirts are manufactured by Ellis Rugby from high quality cotton and feature appliqué badges, each player’s signature and other fine detailing to give every garment a special finish.

The Malcolm Reilly and Roger Millward ranges include Great Britain jerseys and polos based on the 1970 Ashes-winning tour, Castleford and Hull KR jerseys from 1969 and 1970, respectively, and two special polos celebrating the players’ successful stints in Australia at Manly Warringah and Cronulla Sutherland.

The Billy Boston range has a jersey and polo based on Wigan’s 1959 and 1965 Challenge Cup successes and his Great Britain jersey from the 1962 Lions tour.

The Neil Fox range also features a 1962 Great Britain jersey along with a 1960 Wakefield Trinity jersey and polo.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said: “As champions of the sport’s great heritage we are proud to be involved with the Rugby League Hall of Fame and privileged to be able to celebrate the deeds of its biggest stars.

“From our early discussions, we knew we needed garments of a quality that reflected the status of the Hall of Fame legends and Ellis Rugby have delivered that: the jerseys and polo shirts are simply outstanding and I am sure they will be well received by Rugby League fans.

“I would like to thank Kevin Ellis and his team at Ellis Rugby for helping deliver our vision for the RL Hall of Fame.”

Ellis Rugby Managing Director Kevin Ellis said: “It has been great to work with RL Cares and the Hall of Fame legends and their families on this exciting new range, which builds on the success of the Great Britain Rugby League Lions apparel we produced in association with the RL Lions Association last year.

“The Lions range has almost sold out and we are sure the RL Hall of Fame range will be equally well received by Rugby League fans of all ages.”

The full Rugby League Hall of Fame range is available from Ellis Rugby.

Selected items from the Billy Boston Hall of Fame signature range are available from Wigan Warriors; Castleford Tigers are stocking the Malcolm Reilly Range; and the Roger Millward range is in stock at Hull Kingston Rovers.

Rugby League Cares, which works with the RFL to promote the RL Hall of Fame, receives a commission from every sale to help fund the charity’s player welfare programme.
