Rugby Australia confirmed that the Wallabies will anchor their future on-field look with a nod to their World Cup-winning heritage.
Some of the game's most influential figures gathered in Sydney and Brisbane on Thursday night to vote on the national side's jersey colour from 2021 and beyond.
The 1991 Rugby World Cup-winning jersey was chosen after an epic tiebreak and will now form the basis of the Wallabies playing strip heading into the future.
The suspenseful vote saw some of the game's most prominent figures vote on eight iterations of the Wallabies jersey, with the 1991 strip edging out its 1984 counterpart in the final.

Rugby Australia chairperson Hamish McLennan told the Rugby.com.au website: "Firstly I'd like to thank all who took part in the event and to crown, it was a fantastic night, and you couldn't have scripted the ending.
"While I had to cast the final vote, it was ultimately the fans who decided the '91 jersey. More than 13 000 people were polled with the ’91 colour the clear favourite- so that made it an easy decision for me.
"The jersey is key to our identity as a team and a nation, and it's important that it has a nod to its heritage and also appeals to our supporters," McLennan concluded.
