New clothing range celebrates RL Hall of Fame legends

Rugby League Cares has teamed up with Ellis Rugby to create a fantastic new range of heritage leisurewear officially licensed by the Rugby League Hall of Fame.

The initial range will be launched in October with apparel celebrating four celebrated members of the sport’s most exclusive club: Billy Boston MBE, Neil Fox MBE, Malcolm Reilly OBE and the late Roger Millward MBE.

The range comprises polo shirts, and club and international jersey based on the ones worn by the players at the height of their careers.

The Malcolm Reilly signature range features two polos, as well as a Castleford jersey based on the 1969 Wembley kit and a Great Britain jersey from the 1970 Ashes-winning tour.

Roger Millward’s range also has two polos, his Hull Kingston Rovers club jersey and a 1970 Ashes tour jersey.

Neil Fox and Billy Boston’s 1962 Lions tour jersey features in their range, along with polo shirts and Wakefield Trinity and Wigan jerseys.

Chris Rostron, the Head of Rugby League Cares, said: “The RL Hall of Fame range builds on the success of the recent Rugby League Lions Association range and we have no doubts it will prove to be just as popular among the sport’s fans.

“Ellis Rugby will make a donation from every sale to our player welfare programme, which is yet another wonderful example of the great players of yesteryear helping the players of today.”

Ellis Rugby’s Managing Director Kevin Ellis said: “The Hall of Fame range is currently in production and we expect to have samples ready to show to the players and their families by mid-August.

“This is a terrific project for us to be involved in and as a lifelong Rugby League fan I’m thrilled to be able to work with some of my heroes on the Hall of Fame range.”

The RL Hall of Fame range is being produced with the support of the players, their families and the clubs and will be available from the club shops, Ellis Rugby and online specialists from late October.
