Check out this awesome Canterbury rugby stash!

As you are probably aware we love a stash review and the brilliant guys at kit giants Canterbury were kind enough to provide us with some of their current England stash to check out.

We like to be fair when we try products out and we have to say that Canterbury kit is quality stash. It’s not cheap but it’s tough, long lasting and you get a lot for your pound. So here is what we tested.

England Thermoreg quarter zip Top, £58, available from www.canterbury.com.

Ideal for the spring evenings. This lightweight top is just right to wear over a t-shirt on your way to the club. The make quality is excellent and the zips on the front and pockets are tough. We do like the alternative yellow as it’s a little bit different, however it is also available in red. Warm in the wind but light enough to wear during a spring sunny spell (if we get one) this is our favourite bit of stash.

England Vapodri+ pro SS Training Jersey, £58, available from www.canterbury.com

Again, we trialled it in the yellow, which we really like as an alternative to the red. This top is very comfortable and is thicker than a t-shirt but not as heavy as a jumper. Perfect for the run in to summer. A nice bit of stash for casual clubhouse use.

England Vapodri Polyknit Pant, £40, available from www.canterbury.com

With all these great tops you will be needing an awesome pair of tracky bottoms. These are soft and comfortable for lounging around at home or running around the park. What more can we say? Need some tracksuit bottoms? Get these.

NB.

Thermoreg technology encourages thermal regulation, ideal for cold training sessions on the field

VapoDri features throughout the range, designed to wick moisture away from the body and maintain core temperature throughout gruelling workouts.

Love Sevens? Then Canterbury have you covered.

Rugby clothing and kit provider Canterbury has revealed the new England Sevens kit. The kit will be worn for the first time in Hong Kong and then throughout the remainder of the men’s and women’s HSBC World Rugby Sevens Series, as well as at Rugby World Cup Sevens 2018.

To help push the players to the top of their game and ensure they excel on the pitch, the new kit features Canterbury’s pioneering fabric technology including, VapoDri, Canterbury’s own technology allowing the user to train harder for longer. With advanced wicking properties, sweat evaporation is boosted, allowing the garment to dry extremely quickly.

England rugbyaesthetic design of the new shirt has been inspired by the disruptive and dynamic style of the England Sevens teams and sevens as a sport, combined with the tradition of England Rugby. The white home jersey features the St George’s cross in dark grey and bright pink, while the alternate jersey features the pattern in bright pink, a traditional symbol utilised in a new, fresh iteration to appeal to fans.

Commenting on the launch of the new range, Simon Rowe, Head of Sports Marketing at Canterbury of New Zealand, said: “We’re very proud of the latest design of the 2018 England Sevens kit. We continue to push the boundaries with our continually evolving innovative technologies which ensure that every player is able to perform to the best of their ability and improve themselves both as individuals and as a team.”

Tom Mitchell, England Sevens captain, commented: “As a player, you feel an immense sense of pride when you put on the England shirt to represent your country and you want to be at your absolute best. It gives us real confidence knowing we are wearing the best possible kit and we look forward to wearing this new kit as we represent England at the Rugby World Cup Sevens this year.”

England Sevens women’s player, Abbie Brown, added: “It’s a big year for sevens, culminating in the Rugby World Cup Sevens in July, and every time we pull on the shirt we want to give it our all. Every player in the squad is proud to represent England, put on the jersey and wear the rose.”

The new England Sevens kit is available to buy now in sizes S-4XL at www.canterbury.com and www.englandrugbystore.com
