Patrick Tuipulotu Match Worn Shirt, Italy-All Blacks 12/11/16
Win the home All Blacks shirt season 2016/2017 worn by Auckland's second row Patrick Tuipulotu during friendly match against Italy.
The match of the 11th of November at the Olympic Stadium in Rome, ended 10-68 in favour of the New Zealand team. Tuipulotu gained his 12th presence with the All Blacks shirt with a special embroidered detail which makes this item even more interesting.
The new All Blacks shirt was first issued on the 5th of November in the test match against the US and sewed with no stitches with a digital technique which eliminates any chance of the shirt to be ripped. Also, it has four elastic zones which guarantee the best visibility for the players.
The collar is in ribbed fabric, plain and lower than the usual standard ones used up to now: this makes it difficult to grab.
An estetic detail which mustn't be underestimated is the pattern which resumes the fern and is also sewed digitally in the weave.
The shirt was swapped with Marco Fuser at the end of the game.
