Andy Irivine, Chairman of the RaboDirect PRO12, today launched this year’s competition in Belfast at the city’s Titanic Experience together with all 12 team captains. Representatives of Rhino Rugby Ireland and guests attended the event which also marked Rhino’s third consecutive year as a Sponsor of the competition. In addition to supplying the match balls for all games, we will also continue supply the referees and pitchside officials kit.
The RaboDirect PRO12 continues to go from strength to strength. The competition supplied 28 of the British & Irish Lions triumphant tour party in Australia and it now ranks in prestige and playing standards alongside the English Premiership and the French Top 14 tournaments.
