The Locker Room


2014-02-01-xmascardv2The competition for the best Christmas card received by Rhino was this year won by Jim and Anna Parton, the hosts of the now legendary Piotrowice Nyskie International Rugby Festival which takes place in mid August in Silesia in Poland. In addition to featuring a striking winter photograph of their magnificent Schloss on the border of Poland and the Czech Republic, the grounds of which feature the two rugby pitches on which they stage their annual event, the card also shows the Parton family sporting Rhino branded tournament T shirts and rugby balls - well done Jim, Anna, Jozefina, Henryka, Nela, Herbert and Fryd! Just for good measure the photo also features Jim holding the turkey which presumably he later despatched to provide their Christmas dinner. No pussyfooting about at M&S for the Partons.... The Piotrowice Nyskie International Rugby Festival, which features Men’s and Women’s 7s and Men’s 15s, has grown in just three years into one of Central Europe’s leading social rugby events and was remarkably shortlisted at the 2012 Rugby Expo Awards at Twickenham alongside the English Premiership Final and eventual winner the Las Vegas Sevens in the global Rugby Event of the Year category. As Rhino is now sponsor of the LV Sevens which take place shortly on January 24th – 26th , we are proud to be associated with two of these three events. The PNIRF takes place this year on August 16th – check out Facebook for further details.
