I'd rather it went to a new ref to wear but if you bought it via membership or were given it, then it's yours to do with as you wish. I tend to donate all my old kit.

How do society people feel about their kit appearing on eBay?

For example - anyone want to referee as a Hampshire Society Ref?

Maybe you would prefer Devon?

Or just promote yourself to the National Panel!

Does it matter?

Who sells it & who buys it?

Quite often see a NSW Rugby referee shirt offered on ebay in Aus. This makes me laugh as it is common knowledge among NSW rugby referees that such shirts are/were supplied to the original wearer free of charge from NSW Rugby (unfortunately not any more) and so what would somebody with a use for one be willing to pay for something they know cost nothing?
Funniest posting I saw on ebay came with the following qualifier, "Please note that purchasing this shirt does not make you a referee".

I have 5 "old" ref shirts that I don't use anymore (we have a different kit now). I plan to bundle them up with a heap of other rugby gear and send them to some people my daughter knows in Fiji for the locals to make use of.

Who's leg you pulling? ........... the shirts are bundled up & exchanged for Fiji's most talented U20's players, that's how you got Kuridrani isn't it? :biggrin:

I gave my last shirt to the homeless............ they propped it open with some sticks and 5 of them live in it now, all those curry's & pints not wasted ..... I feel so much happier that my efforts benefit so widely.:pepper:

That's almost as funny as the label I saw on a kids Superman outfit...

Charliebelle88 - would have thought that he (or she?) was 25 years old (born in 88) - odd for them to have 10 year old Hampshire kit!

I doub't they are running away with the proceeds of the sale.

Or could be a celtic supporter (1888 is often represented as just 88).

?? I got a new one given to me this year (and a training/warm up shirt too)

WTF?
You Sydney boys get looked after.
Must be only the regional zones that NSWRU is not supporting. There's a shock!!!

If our society forces us to buy shirts for 37 quid plus delivery we should sell them to who we like!!!

I've just spied them in the new online shop! :wow:

I'm glad I got some when they were only £25 each.
