A rugby shirt is a sports jersey worn by players of rugby union or rugby league. Rugby shirts usually have a buttoned opening at the top, in a similar style to polo shirts but often with a stiffer collar. Due to the nature of the game, the fabric is generally strong, and traditionally rugby shirts have rubber buttons so that they would, if pulled on in a game, come undone rather than pop off. Rugby shirts usually have short sleeves, though long sleeves are common as well.
A traditional design of rugby shirt consists of five or six horizontal stripes or hoops in alternating colours. Rugby league shirts often have a large 'V' around the neck as part of their design. Rugby shirts, like most sport tops, will usually have a players number on the back. Rugby shirts were traditionally made out of cotton, but as synthetic fabrics became cheaper they have become incorporated into rugby shirts. The two most common materials are either cotton or polyester or sometimes a mix of both.
The reason rugby teams may choose to wear polyester jerseys in a rugby game is that polyester is harder to get hold of in a tackle situation, as it is inherently more slippery than cotton or a cotton-blend. In addition, the increasing use of skin tight shirts further enhances this effect, as there is no loose material for a tackler to get a grip of. The other benefit of man-made fibre over cotton is that it absorbs less water and mud. As rugby is a sport played mainly in winter and often during bad weather, a cotton rugby kit can weigh a lot heavier when wet restricting the rugby player during a game.
Rugby shirts have also become a very popular fashion item, with many clothing manufacturers producing rugby style shirts, with the distinctive collar and hooped or squared design, which do not represent an actual club. Replica club or national team rugby shirts and tops are also a very popular clothing.
