ENGLAND AND ST HELENS MAKE USE OF RHINO EQUIPMENT AT BROWNS
The strategic partnership between Rhino Rugby and Browns Sports & Leisure Resort in the Algarve is proving useful for Rhino’s Official Supplier teams. The England squad under Martin Johnson are currently at Europe’s leading warm weather training facility and in addition to using the Rhino contact equipment which is permanently in place as part of Rhino’s tie up with Browns and with which the England squad are extremely familiar, they additionally have access to the very Rhino Dictator scrum machine they used during their 2007 Rugby World Cup campaign to such great effect in terms of scrummaging performance. The machine was transferred from France to the Algarve following the tournament and the conclusion of the partnership agreement between Rhino and Browns in late 2007. Two weeks, ago, recent Rhino signing on Official Supplier status, St Helens Rugby League Club warmed up for the forthcoming Super League season with a week at Browns. Mike Rush, head of youth development for Saints, was delighted with the set up at Browns and the fact that Rhino equipment was available on site – “it’s great to have consistency in terms of the training equipment a squad uses, and having been very pleased with the new Rhino products we have taken delivery of in the UK, it was great to be able to use the same equipment on site at Browns”.
