Overwatch 2’s Summer Games may have ended in July, but that hasn’t stopped Blizzard from dropping new sporty skins for heroes that align perfectly with the inspiration for the event.

A new rugby-themed bundle for Junker Queen made its way to the Overwatch 2 store today, including a fresh skin that the Junkertown matriarch probably should have had in her wardrobe a long time ago.

Rocking an Australian-themed green and yellow rugby kit, the new Epic-quality skin comes complete with a mohawk and some eye black. The addition of the skin won’t be a surprise to many players who have paid attention to other OW cosmetics, though. Prior to this week, Blizzard had already added a rugby player icon and spray. The cosmetics were earnable by players through an in-game challenge during this year’s Summer Games.

The Epic-quality skin comes with three other items in the Rugby Junker Queen Bundle that players can purchase through next Thursday, Sept. 21. The bundle includes a Rugby Ball weapon charm, Rugby Queen player icon, and a Drop Kick emote. The bundle costs a total of 1,700 OW coins, which equates to about $17.

The new skin release might be two months after the Summer Games started but it’s less than a week ahead of the Overwatch 2 Anniversary celebration event that will include the return of numerous game modes. It will also include the return of a lot of Legendary skins that players will be allowed to use Overwatch credits to purchase, as opposed to needing to buy coins.
