Highlanders choose R80 Rugby to prepare for the 2012 Super 15

R80 is delighted to be appointed as the official fitness and rugby equipment supplier to the Highlanders. These popular Southern men have a reputation for hard work and uncompromising forward play. This season head coach Jamie Joseph has selected a squad with many new faces including rising star Colin Slade. Let’s hope all the hard training pays off and the boys have a great 2012 Super 15.

“At a Super Rugby level training is intense and the last thing you need is equipment not performing for you as it’s intended . I have been impressed by the quality and durability of the R80 and XLR8 equipment.  It takes a fair bashing but stays in one piece and that’s what I need to be able to count on to ensure we train effectively at all times”

Andrew Beardmore, Highlanders Trainer


“The training accessories that R80 provides are an essential part of the Highlanders day to day life.  Having good robust gear that stands up to constant heavy contact during training is all that I can ask for”

Jamie Joseph, Highlanders Coach
