What is Rugby League Merch?
Hi everyone, Scott here. I created and run Rugby League Merch, the home for apparel from your favourite teams, players, podcasts, and more.
I started this business halfway through the 2021 season because as a bigger guy I could never get shirts with designs I liked in my size. Being a Graphic Designer I just made my own. Now on RLM you can get shirts from S - 5XL (which is the equivalent of 8XL at your local clothing store).
The range has now expanded to include hoodies, mugs, caps and more. Over a dozen rugby league related podcasts, pages, and websites are now using RLM to fulfill their merch orders.
RLM products are printed on demand. Customers can order as they would on any other website and RLM will complete the order though an extensive network of vetted print providers.
With a full season now under my belt, I’m taking all of those little tidbits of knowledge along the way to improve the website and continue designing products that you can be proud to wear.
Don't see your favourite podcast's merch here? Let them know they can get custom merch made at Rugby League Merch for no upfront cost.

Deliveries & Returns
How long will it take to ship my order?
Delivery times may vary depending on the delivery location as well as the type of product you order. Being print on demand, you can expect to receive your order within 6 weeks.
Once you've placed your order it usually takes 1-5 business days before it's ready to ship out. Once it leaves the printer you'll receive an automated email with tracking information.
Products made in Australia: 2 - 3 weeks.
Products made elsewhere: 4 - 6 weeks.
Where are Rugby League Merch products shipped from?
Orders are produced at third-party fulfillers around the world, including facilities in the United Kingdom, Australia, and across the United States.
By default Rugby League Merch products are fulfilled in Australia. If a product is fulfilled elsewhere, the product page will mention where and give you an estimate on how long shipping will take.
If your order contains multiple items, you may receive your order in multiple packages at different times. If you have a question about your order, please don't hesitate to contact us via the Contact Us page.
Can I change my delivery address after I've placed an order?
If your order has not been shipped yet then we can deliver to an alternate address for you. Pleasecontact usas soon as possible and we will see what we can do.
What's your return policy?
Under the Australian Consumer Law, when you buy products they come with automatic guarantees that they will work and do so as described. If you buy something that isn't right, you have consumer rights.
If you feel your purchase has arrived to you in an unsatisfactory condition, you have the right to ask for a replacement or refund.
If this does happen, we will ask you to take a photo of the issue and email it to firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, we will do what we can so that everyone's satisfied with the outcome.
Please note that neither a replacement or refund will be provided for a simple change of mind or if you selected the wrong garment size.
What's with the strange shipping amounts at the check out?
Shipping costs are calculated to the cent so you are charged the exact cost that our print providers around the world charge.
Care Instructions & Sizing
How should I wash my shirt?
Turn garments inside out to preserve the integrity of the design. Use cold water only, and laundry detergent without bleach. Dry on low under normal settings. Expect about 5-7% (about half a shirt size) shrinkage after a normal wash for cotton shirts. Wash colours separately from whites, especially on the first wash.
Over time, you may experience slight fading on the graphic as your shirt naturally weathers with repeated washings. This will happen faster if you don't follow the above instructions.
Why does my shirt smell strangely?
The printing process involves preparing the shirt with a setting spray - this helps the design take to the shirt, and makes for a long-lasting print. The spray does have an odour and if the shirt is packaged soon after printing, the smell can linger a bit.
Not to worry! The smell should go away on its own, but if it persists you can flip the shirt inside out and wash it on cold and dry on low. Or you can rinse the garment in cold water and hang it to dry! Either should get rid of any residual odour. If the smell remains, feel free to let us know via the Contact Us page.
Why did my shirt arrive with faded spots all over it?
The last step of the printing process includes the use of a setting spray to make sure the design stays on the shirt. Occasionally this spray can leave faded spots on the shirt, but those should wash out after the first wash! If they don't, please let us know and we'd be happy to rectify this for you.
Do you have any size charts?
Here are several charts to give you a better idea of which size you should buy:

Is it safe to use my credit card on this website?

What does Rugby League Merch do to give back?
In addition to providing many rugby league related brands a place to sell their merch, Rugby League Merch has partnered with Men of League to raise money for those in the community who are less fortunate and need support.
10% from every order on this website goes directly to Men of League via donation. Talking League has also pledged 50% of all their profits to this worthy cause.
The total raised so far can be seen at the bottom of the home page.
