Here at Rival Kit, we are huge fans of women’s rugby. We have loved watching the game go from strength to strength over the past few years and gain the wider recognition it so well deserves. Unfortunately, we wish we could say the same for the kit development. For too long, female players have been expected to play in ill-fitting, unflattering, and often downright ugly strips - hardly fostering peak performance! So, we are determined to play our part in producing great strips that meet the often overlooked needs of female players.
We teamed up with our good friend Elis Martin, and with big thanks to her teammates at Edinburgh University Ladies Rugby Football Club (EULRFC), we have created a full sizing set of strips developed with real players. EULRFC have consistently been topping their BUCS Leagues and are experts on what is needed to make great rugby kit. Working with real players rather than models meant we could spend time developing both perfect fitting, and high-quality strips.
Check out @Tropics7s and @luuwrufc on Instagram to see some of our kit in action. We can’t wait for the teams to get back out on the pitch!
