RHINO APPOINTED AS OFFICIAL SUPPLIER TO GOLDEN LIONS RUGBY UNION IN SOUTH AFRICA.
Rhino Rugby South Africa (Pty) Ltd is proud to announce a new Official Supplier Agreement with
the Golden Lions Rugby Union which will see Rhino supplying the world’s best Scrumming
Equipment and Rugby Technical Training Equipment to the Lions Super Rugby Team and the
Golden Lions Currie Cup Teams.
The deal was signed with the greater objective of exposing schools and clubs in the Golden Lions
Rugby Unions region to a higher technical, skills and conditioning level of training techniques and
equipment, so as to bring the larger player pool in this region in line with these developments
Internationally. The Northern Hemisphere has been exposed to this equipment and training
techniques for almost 8 years now, so our schools and clubs have to catch-up as this ultimately
affects our franchises and National Teams. The objective is to close the gap from a skills and
technical perspective with the rest of the rugby world.
Albert Pestana, Rhino Rugby South Africa, comments: “Rhino has been working to get our
equipment into the Lions for some time now, and we are happy that the coach and the senior
management have recognised the importance of having the best equipment available to train their
players and teams. We look forward to working with them during the forthcoming Super Rugby
Season as well as the Currie Cup Rugby Tournament.”
Reg Clark, Rhino Group CEO, comments: “I would like to congratulate Rhino Rugby South Africa
on this breakthrough deal with the Lions. Rhino is committed to maintaining its position as the world
number one supplier of technical training equipment for rugby, and partnerships such are an
important part of that process”.
