If you happened to watch the Leicester Tigers vs Gloucester match last weekend you may have been wondering why a number of the opposition forwards were wearing underpants on their head? The answer is that they were helping to promote the “It’s in the bag” charity.
Kooga have released a uniquely designed headguard in support of the Bristol and South West testicular cancer charity, “It’s in the bag”. The likes of Ben Morgan, Huia Edmonds and Sione Kalamafoni all wore the headguard in last weekends fixture.
“It’s in the bag” was launched to support men who have been diagnosed with testicular cancer. Sue Brand Germ Cell Clinical Nurse Specialist and Dr Jeremy Braybrooke have got together with men from the South West and set up the charity which aims to raise awareness, raise money and celebrate & support survival.
The headguard has all the same features as their other Shadow III head guards which include TBT temperature balance technology and ergonomic optimisation to the cranial area. A truly unique design sees the charity logo decorated in vibrant orange across the headguard and the Kooga branding sported over the forehead. 25% of every sale goes to the charity.
