Rugby Boot Spotting – 3rd and 4th December

Rugby Boot Spotting – 3rd and 4th December

Shane Williams international career came to a close at the weekend whilst another (shorter) legacy continued; Harlequins beat Wasps which means they have played 10 league games, won 10 league games this season. Even though Williams last game for Wales ended in defeat, he managed to finish on a high with a try in the last play of the game.

Williams is the first player boot spotted this week in a pair of the new Puma V1.11s featuring messages from his fans following a twitter competition by Puma. There were two more spots from the game with Australia’s James Slipper sporting the Asics Lethal Warno SG Rugby Boots and young welsh back Scott Williams wearing the new Adidas Prime Blue RS7’s.

Matt Hopper of Harlequins also features in a pair of White and Gold Nike Legends.

This weekend the Heineken cup returns as some teams attempt to continue on from their great starts in the competition whilst others will be attempting to get their campaigns back on track.
