With the world of rugby having to wait until Rio in 2016 for rugby's re-entry to the Olympics, Rhino has relatively little direct connection with the current Games in London.

One slightly unusual one, however, is the fact that because of Rhino's strong support for the Swazi based rugby charity Skrum, run by the President of the Swaziland RFU Michael Collinson, the two Swazi athletes, sprinters Sibusiso Matsenjwa and Phumlile Ndzinisa, competing next week in the Olympic Stadium have been wearing Rhino/Skrum kit all season.

Together with their coach Muzi Mabuza they have been preparing for the event in Rhino's former base in Tavistock in Devon, hosted by Skrum trustee Rodney Glanville. We wish them all the very best next week.

SKRUM's mission is, via the opportunities provided by teaching the disciplines and structures of rugby, to educate the children of Swaziland in sexual awareness with a view to tackling the country’s HIV/AIDS infection pandemic. Swaziland has the world’s highest infection rate - 42% - and a life expectancy of just 32.
