Young children usually look up to, and make idols out of, superheros and athletes. Some Australian National Rugby League teams have now managed to combine the two.
Clubs around the league integrated different Marvel superheroes such as Thor, Wolverine, Captain America, Iron Man and Hulk into their jersey designs.
It also helps that these guys are muscular and fast, which fits in with the characteristics of most superheroes.
Some in the United States may not care for rugby, or know how it really works, but we’re all for awesome jerseys.
Score one for the Australians here.
