Speaking as one born pre-WW2 and of a generation of "coarse rugby" players, when you only wore the shirt when you actually played rugby, and never one for a club or national side for which you didn't play, I have never bought a shirt whether home or away. I have no problem with others doing so, and for our names to be on a shirt, but it's so ingrained in me that it would feel really odd to wear a shirt to which I was not entitled.

I love this sentiment, I wouldn't go as far as to not wear a club shirt but to be honest I only wear it to matches, I don't wear one as a day to day item.

For me I draw the line at club ties, you never really own your club jersey, there will be multiple versions of your club jersey worn by many many people over the years. But your club tie is yours, you have earned that by representing the club, could be once, could be 200 times, but it's yours and you earned it and the right to wear it.

I am well aware that may seem odd to some!
