Official ISC Western Force home rugby shirt from the 2006 season. Complete with Super 14 logo on the sleeve.
Although this jersey was also used by the club for the following two seasons, it is only the 2006 jersey that featured the 'Tooheys' sponsorship on the sleeve. 'Investec' then took over the official competition sponsorship contract for the 2007 & 2008 campaigns.
Condition of this original rugby jersey is 9/10 – Superb (see photos).
Fantastic looking shirt, ideal for a collector or for framing.
On 21 April, 2006 a crowd of 32,231 saw the Force nearly pull off the upset of the year in their debut Super 14 season, drawing 23-all with the undefeated defending champion Crusaders. Though the Force were leading 7–0 after several minutes the feeling was still that the Crusaders would win, especially after they scored a try seconds later to make it 7–5.
Only when the Force had blown the score out to 17–5 did anyone begin to talk of an upset. Leading 20–8 at half time the Force did not hold on for the win after the Crusaders scored two tries and a penalty within the closing half. At 23-all with seconds left the Force crashed over the line but were denied by the television match official.
Two days after the draw with the Crusaders, the Force were able to sign rising star Matt Giteau from the Brumbies, effective with the 2007 season. Giteau, whose contract with the Brumbies ended after the 2006 season, inked a three-year deal reportedly worth $4.5 million, making him the highest-paid player in the history of any Australian football code.
