Imagine walking down the street in a signed New Zealand Rugby League jersey. Now imagine that the jersey you’re wearing has also been worn by a Rugby League Player in the 2017 World Cup! It sounds too good to be true, but it is exactly what we have up for auction right here, right now. Donated by the New Zealand Rugby League team, this jersey is as close to the action as it gets, and is bound to make everything else in your wardrobe look far less legendary by comparison. Does it really matter, though? Owning this jersey would make wearing other clothes completely pointless.

Not only will it be delivered alongside a tonne of admiration, but this rugby jersey will have a certificate of authentication accompanying it when you receive it, so you can rest easy knowing you’ve got a hold of the real deal.
