23 Jun 2008, Rhino Signs London Wasps

London Wasps RHINO SIGNS NEW OFFICIAL SUPPLIER DEAL WITH LONDON WASPS Rhino recently announced a new Official Supplier deal with London Wasps. Just one week before the Guinness Premiership final in which Wasps triumphed over Leicester, Wasps players and officials, including recently appointed Lions coach Ian McGeechan, Chief Executive Tony Copsey, Joe Worsley, Tim Payne, Paul Sackey, Eoin Reddan, Tom Palmer, Raphael Ibanez and Mark van Gisbergen, gathered at the Rhino offices for drinks and canapés to celebrate the deal. For Rhino’s Martin Johnson, hosting the event, it was his last official function before stepping down as a director to take up the England Team Manager job. Johnson, who will remain a Rhino shareholder and firmly associated with the brand going ahead, commented: “Given Rhino’s new location in West London, an Official Supplier contract with a leading London club makes a lot of sense, and in this respect there is no better option for us than Wasps”. Wasps, whose training ground is a 10 minute drive from Rhino’s offices and factory in Chiswick, have committed to a two year deal whereby Rhino will supply them with all of their contact and training equipment. They have been using a top of the range Rhino scrummaging machine for sometime already. Following on from Rhino’s recently announced deal with the British & Irish Lions tour to South Africa in 2009, the London Wasps deal complements Rhino’s longstanding Official Supplier arrangements with England, Wales, Bath and the Cardiff Blues.
