Rhino’s search for the oldest surviving Powerhouse scrum machine still in regular use has produced a response from Oxford University RFC who have nominated their 1985 vintage machine. The machine, which crucially receives an annual service by Rhino, has as a result been in continuous use since being acquired and adds weight to our claim that our equipment lasts longer. Rhino CEO Reg Clark called by the Iffley Road ground today to present OURFC General Manager Tim Stevens and current tight head Ian Williams with a Rhino RaboDirect PRO12 match ball for entering the competition. Williams commented: ‘This Rhino Powerhouse scrum machine may seem like an antique but it played a full part in preparing our scrum for the Varsity Match last year’. Oxford registered their 4th consecutive win over Cambridge, a decisive 33-15 victory. Right, who’s next to enter?
