Hong Kong Rugby Union (HKRU) and Rhino are delighted to announce a new 5-year renewal of their partnership which will see Rhino continue as the official training and equipment supplier of the Union – a role they have fulfilled since 2015.

This will continue to give the Hong Kong national teams access to world class training equipment as they prepare for upcoming tournaments that include the World Cup Sevens and Asian Games later this year.

In addition the HKRU will act as the local Rhino sales agent in Hong Kong, in an exciting new collaborative model. Clubs, schools and university rugby clubs will be able to purchase all their equipment needs through the Rhino portal on the HKRU website, and each sale will earn a commission that will flow back to the community.  

“World class preparation relies on world class training equipment, and there’s no more respected and trusted name on the rugby pitch than Rhino,” according to HKRU General Manager of Performance James Farndon. “We are delighted to have continued access to Rhino’s unrivalled range that includes scrummaging machines, hit shields, tackle bags and rugby accessories.”

“Rhino is an Official Supplier of contact and training equipment to England Rugby, the Welsh Rugby Union and the French Rugby Federation, and to the last four British & Irish Lions tours, and we are delighted to see Hong Kong continue as part of the Rhino ‘family’. We look forward to supporting not just the national teams but grassroots rugby across the whole community over the coming years,” said Piers Higson Smith, Director of Rhino-Powa Holdings (Asia) Ltd.
