Jason Leonard - Centurions match worn shirt
Out of stock
A superb piece of rare match worn memorabilia worn by the England and British and Irish Lions Legend, Jason Leonard. The shirt is from the 'Centurions' game at the Millennium stadium in June 2004.The shirt has the traditional embroidered English rose, together with the match details under. The reverse is numbered 1 and overall it is presented in very good condition, complete with evidence of Jason’s exertions on the day.
Over 23 thousand fans turned up to pay tribute to the Centurions - Jason Leonard and Neil Jenkins, in a good-natured match that finished with a basketball score of 80-80.All the players wore the numbers of the respective legends they represented, making the proverbial commentators nightmare a reality. And in a carnival atmosphere under the closed roof of the Millennium Stadium, the two stars signed off in style. The game ended in an honourable draw with the England legend taking the last kick himself...he missed by a country mile, and the match was over. His first international appearance was in 1990 and he went on to win an incredible 114 caps for England, a world record only surpassed by George Gregan of Australia. His career straddled the amateur and professional eras, playing for Barking, Saracens, and Harlequins. He played for the Lions 24 times and took part in four World Cups, including the team that won the 2003 World Cup. A rare item of Jason Leonard match worn memorabilia that would make a fine addition to any collection.
