Rhino Rugby Ireland and Leinster Rugby have announced that Rhino will become the Official Ball & Equipment Supplier to Leinster Rugby. The agreement, running to the end of the 2021/'22 season, further strengthens Rhino's long-standing relationship with Leinster Rugby.

Rhino has been the official ball & equipment supplier to the domestic game in Leinster since 2012, providing official match balls to the Bank of Ireland Leinster Rugby Schools Junior and Senior Cup and all domestic league and cup competitions, but this new agreement broadens that remit further.

Following the announcement, Barry Brennan, director of Rhino Rugby Ireland, said: "Rhino Rugby is delighted to expand and extend its strong partnership with Leinster Rugby.

"This relationship is an excellent fit for Rhino.

"We look forward to working with all involved over what we believe will be another successful period for Leinster Rugby."

Speaking on behalf of Leinster Rugby, CEO Mick Dawson said: "The club and the school competitions deserve the best support and the best of equipment and we are delighted to have once again agreed a contract extension with Rhino Rugby."
