Harlequins bid goodbye to jerseys
Silent auction marks end of jersey eraSTU PIDDINGTON
Harlequins first change of playing strip in 15 years means the old jerseys are up for sale.
Their inaugural jersey was based on the Chiefs Super 12 jersey using the colours from their amalgamated clubs, Star and Zingari.
Harlequins spokesperson Gareth Burgess said the club decided it was time to change and went back to the traditional Harlequins style of a quartered jersey.
That left them with last year's playing strip from the senior, senior B and presidents grades.
Burgess said the fairest way to get rid of them was by silent auction, which will be held at the clubrooms tonight.
"There have been a lot of players involved in the club over 15 years, so this way everyone gets a chance at them.''
The JAB jerseys were also for sale at $5 a pop, with shorts and socks also available.
Since 1998 Harlequins have been the most successful senior club with six titles and have only missed the finals twice.
They are set to play defending champions Celtic tomorrow for direct entry into the grand final.
