Welcome to the Rugby Box Summer Newsletter. We have a lot to discuss! It may be summertime but there is no break for the Rugby Box community. Rugby League is in full flow, 7s tournaments are happening all over the country and before long it will be preseason fun for Union clubs. The Summer Rugby Box was launched at the start of this month and is flying. We have a couple of sneak previews for you so keep reading!
London 7s Madness
Last month I was at the London 7s at Twickenham and what an event it was. Highlights were a cracking England v Scotland derby including a last minute game winning try, the phenomenal Fijians and some outstanding fancy dress efforts! It was my first trip to the 7s for around 10 years and it is incredible how much the event has grown since then. The development of the game since it's inception into the Olympic games in 2016 is impressive. Having said that my day involved too little Rugby watching and too much beer drinking! If you are a rugby fan or not, then you should be there. It gives casual fans an opportunity to watch Rugby at Twickenham without having to spend £150 on tickets for a 6 Nations game (our tickets cost £30).
We love Slide Tribe. They make the most awesome custom Sliders for Rugby clubs all over the UK including Harlequins, Hartpury College and Cambridge Uni. These are no cheap flip flops, these are top quality, super durable and incredibly comfortable. Keep an eye out for a pair in your summer Rugby Box. The guys at Slide Tribe saw loads of companies making great stash but no one was making matching footwear. This is how Slide Tribe was born.
Our latest partner club is Eastern Rhinos Rugby League. The Colchester based club play in the Southern Premier Conference and are doing an awesome job in developing young players. Each week the Man of the Match wins a Rugby Box. We are working with Rugby Union, Rugby League, 7s and touch Rugby teams. If you want your club to join the Rugby Box Partner club community then get in touch.
