RNRU supporters shirts for Twickenham 2022
Official Royal Navy Rugby Union Canterbury replica shirts are in stock now and ready for you to wear to the Army v Navy match at Twickenham in 2022. Get yours for less than £30, beat the crowd, and lead the way.
As part of the ongoing merchandise sale, we currently have stock in all sizes from XS through to 5XL in both our home and away replica supporters shirts. These are official replicas of the shirts the players will be wearing during the 2022 inter service competition. Or if you fancy something a bit different take a look at our Navy Rugby Remembrance shirt. Make sure you will be looking the part when you join the celebration at Twickenham next year (covid-19 regulations permitting), when the Royal Navy Rugby Union take on the Army Rugby Union for the highlight of the Inter Service Rugby calendar. We also have limited sizes (XS, 2XL, 3XL and 4XL) available in our stylish Evasion Print supporters shirt. (Information correct at time of publication).
If you fancy something more versatile, and that won’t make too much of a dent in your bank balance, check out the classic “triple C” T-shirt in grey or navy, with the Royal Navy red white and blue ensign design incorporated. These are excellent value at £13.20 so are selling fast.
There really is something for everyone, from baby bibs and hats for the youngest supporters, children’s shorts and T-shirts, RNRU whiskey glass gift sets and a range of classic long sleeved cotton rugby jerseys for dad (Father’s Day is coming up on 20 June), and plain navy blue or hooped navy blue and dark pink long-sleeved rugby jerseys for Women. Whether you are a current player or are thinking of returning to rugby when lockdown ends, or prefer watching from the sidelines, it is definitely worth checking out what we have left in stock. Hoodies, tracksuit trousers, T-shirts, singlets, shorts and socks are all heavily discounted and will only be available for a limited time.
Orders will be dispatched as soon as practicable and before you know it you will be ready for the return to rugby. The RNRU webshop will close on 31 March 2021.
The reason for the sale is two-fold: firstly, to generate income for the Royal Navy Rugby Union and secondly, because our business partnership with Sapphire Seven Ltd is coming to an end in April. This is because of changes we have had to make to our business operating model as a result of the impact of covid-19 and the loss of income to the RNRU following the cancellation of Army v Navy 2020 and 2021.
All sales of merchandise generate income for the RNRU to spend on rugby for our sailors and marines, so the more you buy, the more we can spend on playing rugby. Sapphire Seven Ltd have been responsible for all of our merchandise sales so unfortunately with the end of the contract, we will, for the foreseeable future, suspend our merchandise sales. We do intend to sell RNRU branded merchandise again in the future, and are already investigating options of how we will do this. But in the meantime, it is prudent to take a pause so we can focus on the core task of getting people back to playing rugby.
This is your chance to grab a bargain while you can, and support the Royal Navy Rugby Union, a registered charity, in the process. We will be following the RFU guidance on returning to rugby and if restrictions continue to ease, we are planning to play both community and representative rugby this summer. Further details will be advertised via this website and on our social media channels.
In the meantime, please take a look at the offers in our webshop and a very big thank you to all our staff, supporters, players, coaches, referees, sponsors, volunteers, life members, patrons and families who continue to ensure the success of the Royal Navy Rugby Union.
