Official Canterbury Saracens home long sleeve rugby shirt from the 1999 season. This was the last jersey that Cotton Oxford made for Saracens before the club's kit contract was taken over by Canterbury.
Condition of this vintage shirt is 8/10 – Excellent (see photos).
All size and manufacturers labels present (see photos). Material is bright, vivid and smooth. Fantastic looking shirt, ideal for a collector or for framing.
The 1999–2000 season saw more big name players move to Vicarage Road with Mark Mapletoft, Thierry Lacroix, Scott Murray and Dan Luger joining the club along with Darragh O'Mahony and the up-and-coming Julian White. With the squad ravaged by World Cup duty and then injury the club's first attempt at the Heineken Cup was not a happy one. They lost three games by a couple of points in the last seconds of the game and didn't make the quarter finals.
With a few games left they were looking at a possible failure to qualify for Europe again, but Kyran Bracken returned from a ten-month injury to inspire Saracens into fourth place and Heineken Cup qualification.
