Waratahs Jersey Red-Carded



The NSW Waratahs will no longer be permitted to wear their controversial initialled jerseys in the Super 14 competition.

The Waratahs said today they had reluctantly agreed to a SANZAR demand to remove initials from the players jerseys.

The NSW team had experimented with players' initials instead of numbers in a trial game against the Crusaders on Saturday night, which the Waratahs lost 32-30.

NSWRU chief executive Fraser Neill said he was disappointed by the decision but hoped the team would be able to use the initials in non-broadcast matches in the future.

The existing jerseys will be auctioned off with the proceeds going to children's hospitals.



guess we can all shut up now
