Swansea goes crazy for new Ospreys jersey

The Jewson team were in the Quadrant Shopping Centre, Swansea on Saturday afternoon to witness the unveiling of the Ospreys new 2011 home jersey. We’ve been eagerly awaiting the new strip as it features our 175th anniversary logo on the sleeve.

Hundreds of rugby fans turned out to catch a glimpse of rugby stars Shane Williams, Alun Wyn Jones and Ryan Jones, as well as up and coming youngsters Justin Tipuric, Ashley Beck and James King who modeled the new black and steel blue shirt on stage for their supporters.

The event was hosted by 102.1 Bay Radio’s award-winning breakfast presenter Tommo, who whipped the crowd up into a frenzy ahead of the appearance by the entire senior squad, who met with fans, signing autographs and posing for pictures.

More than 42,000 Ospreys jerseys were sold over the last 12 months and the 2011 version is expected to prove just as popular.
