Brian Vizard is auctioning another test jersey to support the USRFF:

Rob Andrew Autographed England World Cup Jersey up for Auction

An England rugby jersey, signed by one of the greats of English rugby, Rob Andrew, is the latest piece of rugby history that is being auctioned by the United States Rugby Football Foundation. Not only is the jersey an official England jersey, but it was worn by Andrew in a match against the United States at the 1991 Rugby World Cup.

This mint-conditioned game worn jersey was donated to the USRFF by Chris O’Brien, past United States Eagle player who played opposite Andrew in the 1991 match at Twickenham.

"I am very happy to donate the Rob Andrew jersey to the Rugby Foundation," said O’Brien, the third leading scorer in Eagles' history. "As one who started playing the game while in high school and having coached high school rugby I am wholly supportive of the Rugby Foundation and its efforts in growing the game in the U.S. through the youth and high school ranks."

Photos, a more detailed description of the jersey and more information about Rob and Chris and their respective teams, can be found on eBay, item #180225300492. The bidding will conclude at 9:00 a.m. (PDT) on Saturday, March 29, 2008.
