Harlequins confirmed today (23rd May) that Chris Brooker is leaving the club to join Worcester Warriors.
Rather than just making a really small version of the existing Kids design, the good people at O'Neills have designed a completely new shirt, optimised for practicality and the comfort of the tiny wearer.
The existing Adults and Kids Replicas are made from the same fabric as the Playing Shirts; this would be too heavy and stiff for a Tiny Replica, so a softer lighter technical polyester is used instead. The use of this fabric also makes the shirts very quick drying.
The neck has also been redesigned to make it very easy to get a tiny person's head through it without pulling ears off etc! The generous v-neck should make getting the wearer into and out of the shirt a rather less troublesome process than it perhaps might otherwise be!
The Tiny Replicas are fully sublimated, just like their larger counterparts, reducing seams and eliminating embroideries/appliques that might rub (not to mention avoiding weakening of the fabric).
To get hold of yours, just head down to the Twickenham Green shop; we've also assigned a small amount of stock to the Online Store (all links open in new windows): all Home Replicas are here and all Away Replicas are here.
Finally, don't forget: if you are a Season Ticket Holder for the 11-12 season, you can claim 20% off the new Replicas, including the Tiny ones (more details, plus T&C, here).
