Best World Cup jersey: England vs Wallabies

England’s world champion strip of 2003 goes up against the Wallabies’ 2019 drip to kickstart the search for the finest jersey in Rugby World Cup history.

With the unveiling of new jerseys ramping up excitement levels for the 2023 World Cup, what better time to reminisce about all the famous strips worn at the tournament over the years?

An iconic kit worn in England’s finest hour, Nike made all the right moves with the 2003 jersey. Modern yet simplistic, the jersey encapsulated the classic white and red of England with no frills like abstract designs or distracting patterns.

Watch: Make or break for Andre the Giant

And of course, the fondness for the jersey is significantly bolstered by the fact that England won the tournament, a first for the northern hemisphere.

Australia finished behind Wales in arguably the easiest pool of the lot at the 2019 World Cup before suffering a 40-16 thrashing against Eddie Jones’ England side in the quarter-finals.

In a pretty abysmal tournament, the Wallabies did manage to get one thing right – their clean and minimalistic ASICS jersey.

This poll has ended (since 10 months).

Who had the better World Cup jersey?
