I am trying to find this Jersey for my boyfriend for his birthday that coming up, he loves The Lions Please help!
Try googling British Lions rugby shirt
Why do our English Football and Cricket teams have the Three Lions emblem, but the Rugby team a Rose?
I know a little of the history of the rose, so please don’t tell me that, I guess, I really wanna know why they are different.
Found this on a website, might help answer
The simple answer is that we do not know why it was chosen, but there are three possibilities:
The royal English rose is white and red. This rose was created to symbolise the marriage between Henry VII (House of Lancaster) and Elizabeth (House of York) and the end of the War of the Roses. Therefore, the ‘English’ rose is not red, but half red and half white. However, subsequent monarchs (such as Elizabeth I) continued to be associated with the red rose because they were descended from the House of Lancaster. So it is the red rose (rather than the red and white rose) which is often, incorrectly, seen as symbolising England or the English monarchy. Therefore the RFU might have selected the red rose for this reason.
Secondly, Lawrence Sheriff, the founder of Rugby School (where the game started) was presented with a coat of arms by Elizabeth I and in doing so she allowed him to use her red (Lancaster) rose [see above] on the crest. When he founded Rugby School the new institution based their own coat of arms on his, and so the red rose ended up on the Rugby School crest. The white kit worn by England was taken from the kit used at Rugby School, so it might be that a symbolic image was also taken from the school crest as a badge. Even more likely is the possibility that a combination of this connection with Rugby School and the incorrect identification of the red rose as the ‘English’ rose
The third possibility is that the red rose is actually used because it is also the symbol of the county of Lancashire. Of the subcommittee of men who selected the first England side in 1871, two came from clubs in Lancashire (Liverpool and Manchester). It is therefore possible that they were also responsible for selecting the England kit (including the red rose). However, it is highly unlikely that the other RFU Committee members would have accepted such a blatantly regional emblem on the national jersey and they would have reversed such a decision immediately.
Just curious why England wear the three lions, when their rugby team wears a rose? Are these symbols/logos for the teams rather than England generally? If so, what *is* the traditional logo for England (irrespective of sport)?
National emblems of England: Tudor rose, Lion, The Crown, St. George’s Cross
Coat of arms of England: Three Lions
So England football and cricket teams wear the Three Lions because this is the proper coat of arms of England.
The England rugby team wear the rose because in their first ever match against Scotland in Edinburgh the rose was chosen to be their emblem. It’s stuck with the rugby team ever since.
the following link to the Twickenham Rugby museum website explains why the Rugby jersey has the red rose
As per the answers given by the 3 idiots above me, these narrow minded poor idiots were probably told by their uncles and dads that what they were doing in the household was known as rugby…Trust me guys Rugby is entirely something else.. It is played by real men…Hmm come to think of it dont think a bunch of pansy boys like you would get that now will ya? lol
Read some where that some were impressed by kearney when we toured and during the lions…
i know there are alot of people who dont like brian o driscoll… but id hope you would respect him too
by respect i mean think is a good player… im not saying would or wouldnt make it in to teams just want to know if the media is making things up
are these true… is there any1 else??
ferris wallce heaslip or earles possibly??
I wouldn’t categorize this question into hemespheres. It’s a personal choice. For instance, I respect O’Driscoll as one of the best mid-fielders in the business, but also think he’s a whinging, whining pratt, so that takes the shine off a bit. But yes. Respect as a class player
My favorite Irish player of all time is Keith Wood. An absolute monster, and seems the type of guy I’d have a beer with. Total respect for that guy, and I know alot of kiwis who would say the same. Peter Stringer is way up there for me too.

i’ve been playing rugby for a year and a half and have finally chosen harlequins as my team to support. im going to the saracens game at wembley and i dont have the jersey yet, i only have the red british and irish lions shirt. would i look silly wearing it?
of course not. Rugby fans don’t need to follow tribes – most people at a match won’t even wear a rugby shirt. You will be perfectly at home whatever kind of jersey you choose to take along (unless it says something like RUGBY IS RUBBISH )
Does anyone know where I can find this picture? Ryan Jones referred to it in an old interview and getty images, etc. don’t seem to have it! Call it pervy-ness or just keen rugby interest but I want to see it!!!
I don’t he think was referring to himself and Prince William IN the dressing room, it was just a normal picture.
i don’t simply mean the name of the country, but i mean a specific team. for me it would be the 2005 all blacks which "blackwashed" the british and irish lions. i might be a bit biased though. which specific team would go down as the greatest from your point of view?
1996 All Blacks truly awesome team. True greats of world rugby … Lomu, Zinzan, Cullen, Wilson, Fitzpatrick and lets not forget the best loose forward ever Michael Jones.
I was in attendance when they demolished Australia in terrible conditions at Athletic Park in Wellington with flawless rugby
i want to know how the physios put the tape and bandages on the players because i want to be a physios when i grow up and for self purposes before matches like was it zinc oxide tape that bryan habana had on his legs in the 2nd test against the lions?
Generally, props and 2nd row players may have their heads taped to try and avoid ‘cauliflower ears’. As well as this, 2nd rows and flankers often have a sausage shaped piece of paper or fabric taped around their legs to aid the lifters in the line-out. Other than this, players generally only have parts of their body taped up if they are recovering from an injury, i.e. thumb, or wrist injury.
As for Habana, yes it was probably medical tape of some sort. He may have received a cut to his leg and the tape would be to stop the bleeding to avoid the need for a blood substitution, however I don’t know, only speculating.
