A Personal Touch to Sam Tomkins X Blades Rugby Boots

A Personal Touch to Sam Tomkins X Blades Rugby Boots

The professionals players come to Lovell Rugby for that personal touch and the latest to take advantage of our FREE iD boot personalisation service is England and former Wigan Warriors superstar Sam Tomkins.

Now officially the world’s most expensive rugby league player, making the move from Wigan to the New Zealand Warriors next season, the 24 year old full-back has the world at his feet and now also has a pair of customised X Blades Sniper ST Bionic FG Rugby Boots to blaze the pitch with during the forthcoming Rugby League World Cup.


Making a name for himself at both club and international level, his one-man club career with Wigan saw him amass over 600 points and 144 tries in just over 150 appearances for the Warriors. On the international stage, Tomkins is just as prolific having last year become England’s all time rugby league record try scorer as he continues to cement his position amongst the world’s elite. 

You certainly wont miss the target with X Blades latest offering, the Sniper ST Bionic FG Rugby Boot has been designed for pure speed and accuracy. On his X Blades boots, Sam has opted for a proud personal touch by having the England flag stitched onto the outside of each boot along with his initials and twitter name. A colourful and patriotic addition which will certainly stand out but may well prove to be a blur to his opposition. 

Designed to tear into firm natural surfaces, the Sniper employs strategically positioned moulded blades across the forefoot and heel. The elite bionic sole system is made from lightweight TPU with the blades graduated so as to reduce posterior lower limb muscle strain. A subtle feature which can make all the difference in your game.

To be quick on your feet then you need a lightweight offering and these rugby boots glide across the field at just 189g (UK size 8). Blink and you may well miss the action as Tomkins is set to star for England in their opening encounter against Australia this weekend.


With the Rugby League World Cup kicking off at the end of October, you can grab your own pair of X Blades rugby boots from Lovell Rugby – the world’s largest online rugby store. Don’t forget to also take advantage of our FREEiD personalisation service to give your footwear the look of the professionals.
