Under the Radar – December

Under the Radar – December

You seem to spend all year waiting for December and Christmas to come around and just like that it’s all over. Well that’s certainly how it felt at Lovell Rugby HQ and now that the festive decorations have been packed away, we can take time to look back on the exciting new arrivals which kept us all busy and distracted from the mince pies.

December is always a busy month for everyone at Lovell Rugby as we welcome a huge range of new products to the offices. With so much coming in, it’s time to round up some of the items you may have missed out on in December which included rugby boots, rugby shirts and a rather fun training aid. So take a break from your new year resolutions and take a look at what the end of 2013 had to offer.

Puma Spirit Mixed Sole SG Rugby Boots Black/White/Yellow

Designed as a take-down of the high-end Puma King model, the Puma Spirit Mixed Sole SG Rugby Boots lose little in transition and still delivers footwear high on performance and comfort. Featuring a soft leather upper combined with lightweight synthetics, few would argue against the all-round quality that Puma are renowned for. With a traditional central lacing system and cushioned tongue, Puma know exactly how to look after their players.

The addition of a sturdy heel counter means all-important stability and support is delivered where you need it most whether in training or come match day.

Just as the name says, this mixed sole on this Puma rugby boot has been designed to make life easy on soft natural surfaces. Utilising a combination of moulded and screw-in studs alongside each other, this is becoming more common place on boots in order to enhance your performance and traction.


Gold Coast Titans Home NRL 2014 Rugby Shirt

Competing in Australasia’s NRL, the Gold Coast Titans are the latest addition to the league having only been founded in 2007. Made by BLK, from 94% polyester and 6% elastane, this Gold Coast Titans Home NRL 2014 Rugby Shirt offers a looser and more casual fit to the version as worn by the players.

In keeping with the whole Gold Coast theme, a splendid light blue tone to this jersey is matched by the equally impressive gold V-band design atop the upper chest. For a fresh touch, navy and white are a welcome inclusion whilst several colourful sublimated sponsors decorate the whole top.

This is a replica of the Gold Coast Titans rugby shirt as sported by the likes of Australian internationals Greg Bird and Nate Myles.
