RHINO TROPHY GOES TO CHEDDAR VALLEY

Whilst Rhino Rugby is proud of its Official supplier relationships with the Lions, England, Wales, Bath, Cardiff and Wasps, we are also committed to supporting grass roots rugby.

The nearest club to our HQ and manufacturing operations in Somerset is Cheddar Valley RFC and our West London office has for many years had a close relationship with London Japanese RFC. We therefore decided to donate the magnificent mounted Rhino head that has graced our London office for many years as a trophy for an annual game between the two clubs.

On St Patricks Day the two sides met at the Richmond Athletic Ground during Cheddar’s London tour and an excellent game ensued which was finely balanced at 10 all going into the final minutes, at which point man of the match Matt Vaughan burst through the centre for a well taken try to give Cheddar a 15-10 victory.

Both sides repaired to the clubhouse to watch the final 6 Nations games and the Rhino Trophy moved on the next day to its new home in the White Hart in Cheddar, which is looking forward to welcoming London Japanese at the time of the return game next season.
