Sir Patrick Stewart Inspires Star Trek-Themed Rugby League Kit

By Aatif Sulleyman on at

It’s not too often that the worlds of sport and sci-fi mix, but Sir Patrick Stewart has somehow managed to bring rugby and Star Trek together, but here we are.

A rugby league side based in Stewart’s home town of Mirfield has unveiled a new shirt that takes inspiration from the costume worn by Stewart in his role as Captain Jean-Luc Picard. Mirfield Stags will proudly don the strip -- and hope to generate unusually high sales -- over the course of the 2015-16 season.
