Fabulous Feedback from Riyadh Vipers…

It’s always great to receive feedback from the clubs and teams we work with here at Samurai – and even better when we receive photos of the teams in action wearing their Samurai armour!

Take a look at the feedback below from a youth club based in Riyadh, Saudi:

“We had our Annual Riyadh Rugby Day on Friday. and here are a selection of photos from our Minis, Midis and Colts for the Samurai Team. Thanks for your support; the kids all wore the kit with pride. The next big outing is April 5th for the Gulf Junior Rugby Competition in Bahrain on April 5th.” – Andy Goodman, Riyadh Vipers

And here are just a handful of the wonderful photos of the team in action…

Samurai Sportswear is proud to announce its involvement in the newest rugby series in the world.

 

Global Rapid Rugby’s 2019 showcase spectacular is launched on Friday, March 22nd – and Samurai has partnered with one of the teams competing in this inaugural series.

 

The South China Tigers, spearheaded by the Hong Kong Rugby Union, held their official team launch today (March 5th) with players and coaches wearing their custom Samurai leisurewear.

 

They will compete in their new Samurai custom Iconix matchday jersey and Performex ™ kit when they take to the field at the end of this month.

 

Samurai’s Managing Director Terry Sands said: “We are delighted to become the official kit and merchandise partner of the South China Tigers.

 

“Samurai has a strong presence in Asia and we hope that the Global Rapid Rugby series becomes a big success within world rugby.”

 

This year’s series consists of 14 games at six venues across Hong Kong, Singapore, Australia, New Zealand and Fiji.

 

South China Tigers will play at the Aberdeen Sports Ground, Hong Kong, and will be made up largely of the Hong Kong Rugby Union 15s side although they will be joined by Fiji Olympic gold medallist Samisoni Viriviri, Englishman Tom Varndell and Chinese players Ma Chong and Liu Junkui.

 

Confirmed fixtures will see them travel to Perth to play Western Force on March 29th before their first home game on Sunday, April 21st against Asia Pacific Dragons.

 

The return game against the Dragons, in Singapore, is on Sunday, April 28th and Tigers then host Western Force on Sunday, May 12th.

 

Other teams competing in the series include Kagifa Samoa and Fijian Latui.

 

Event organisers are promising a more dynamic version of the game with rule changes designed to promote more of a running game and to keep the ball in play for longer.

Nondescripts Rocking Their New Iconix Shirt & Kit…

We were delighted to receive these brilliant photos of the Nondescripts rugby team in their brand new Iconix shirt and kit. We’d also like to congratulate them on their recent win last week!

 

Manager of Nondescripts RFC, Kevin Were, commented:
“Everyone is very happy – players and the coaching staff all agree that the jerseys are of good quality, and the design is just the best. The Polo shirts are the best that we have had in a very long time. We, as Nondies, say ‘Asante Sana’ (Thank you).”

G-Force examples in sport

Have you ever been on the wrong end of a nasty rugby challenge, or felt your body pushed back in your seat when accelerating away in a sports car? That’s G-Force, a type of acceleration that causes a perception of weight. Here at Samurai we thought we’d look into G-Force and see what the greatest examples of it are in sport? Do you experience more Gs in a rugby tackle or in an F1 car? Does a golf swing have more G-Force behind it than a bat hitting a baseball? Do you experience higher Gs cornering in a Red Bull Air Racing plane or riding in a luge? These are some of the questions we wanted to find the answer to, and the results are really surprising!

So, take a look and discover some of the largest examples of G-Force in sport.
