Local players will be joined by numerous foreign players to form eight franchise teams that will participate at the Sri Lanka Rugby Super Sevens 2016 tournament to be held at the Race Course ground over the weekend.

Large crowds can be expected to flock the grounds at Reid Avenue, as it evolves exciting and entertaining rugby for the rugby loving fans to remember for a long time. This has been the case in previous tournaments as well and hope the trend prevail this year too.
To make this happen in grand style RBN, manufactured by Stafford Garments and Sri Lanka’s first performance wear brand for men and women has pledged to continue its association with Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union.

“RBN is proud to continue its partnership with Sri Lanka Rugby Football Union, having first developed clothing for the Rugby National team since 2013,” said MD Stafford Garments, Shakir Hafeez.

RBN is Sri Lanka’s only locally designed and built performance clothing brand with a focus on rugby, running, cycling and fitness training.

“RBN understands the specific needs of each sport and the rugby jersey is designed to withstand a higher intensity of wear and tear and well as deliver player comfort and performance”, said Hafeez.

The all new Jersey is also equipped with the ‘vapetech’ moisture management platform to ensure players are better able to endure higher temperatures.

“We are fortunate to have RBN as our clothing partner, as it is a superior brand on par with any international brand and has consistently delivered the right mix of comfort and quality to our players”, said Asanga Seneviratne President SLRFU.

“The ongoing fitness revolution in Sri Lanka forms an ideal backdrop for RBN to purpose design and engineer a range of performance garments that suit the local climate and user conditions and will effectively combine fashion and performance whether for a professional athlete or beginner,” said Hafeez.
