The competition closes Wednesday at 6.00pm and a winner will be drawn at random from the correct entries. There is no cash alternative.
Rhino Rugby recently announced its appointment as Official Ball Supplier to the RaboDirect PRO12 for the next 4 seasons. The ball, called the Rhino Vortex Elite, was trialled by some of the tournament’s leading kickers, including Stephen Jones (Scarlets) and Chris Paterson (Edinburgh) as part of the approval process – it passed with flying colours.
Previously Rhino supplied the Official Ball of the British & Irish Lions 2009. However, the RaboDirect PRO12 deal represents an extremely significant move into the performance rugby ball market, which has to date been dominated globally by a small number of suppliers.
In addition to the match balls, Rhino will continue to supply the kit for the competition’s referees and touchline officials.
