We are delighted to announce that London Welsh will be continuing its long standing partnership with Rhino as the official club kit, equipment and merchandise supplier.
The relationship between Rhino and London Welsh dates back to the professional era but we have been especially grateful to our kit partners since project reset in 2017. As they say, in tough times you rely upon your friends and Rhino has certainly been there through thick and thin.
As the club enters its 5th new league in 5 seasons after consecutive promotions under the clubs stated 5 year plan, we are excited to also see Rhino go from strength to strength. Rhino were appointed as official supplier to the British & Irish Lions tour of South Africa in 2021.
As a Welsh company, Rhino has many synergies with London Welsh both on and off the field. We are delighted to continue with another strong partnership and look forward to further shared success in 2022/23.
Dave Reynish, Managing Director of Rhino Global, had the following to say on the re-affirmed partnership:
“As a Cardiff-based company, we’re incredibly proud of our long partnership with London Welsh, joining them through the highs and lows of professional and amateur rugby. We can’t congratulate them enough on their incredible rise back through the league pyramid and can’t wait to see what the next five years bring with this wonderful rugby club.”
Jonathan Shankland, Commercial & Legal Director at London Welsh, commented:
“We are truly delighted to continue the long term partnership with Rhino. Rhino has become one of Rugby’s essential brands over recent years and as big name in the market, also hailing from Wales, the tie up makes perfect sense. Rhino has Supportered us as a club for many years and we look forward to a bright future with them not only by our sides, but also literally on our chests!”
The 2022/23 official jersey and merchandise collection is well into design phase and we cannot wait to reveal the strip this August in preparation for the league season.
