The Wallabies have unveiled their new jersey for the Rugby World Cup – and it marks a significant change from recent designs.
The jersey includes a sizeable amount of green trim around the color but – more interestingly – the Wallabies logo has been moved from the dominant position on the chest to the left sleeve. Taking its place is the Australian rugby coat of arms. This change is a design choice Rugby Australia also adopted for the 2015 World Cup jersey.

In the days leading up to the announcement, the Wallabies Twitter page has been polling fans on their favourite World Cup jerseys, with 2003’s coming out the ultimate victor.
And the winner is….2003!
You’ve voted the 2003 kit the best of the lot.
