Seventh Rugby World Cup Finals One Day Away!

The 7th Rugby World Cup is just around the corner and in true Young Academic style, we have our finger right on the pulse of everything that is going on in New Zealand. The hosts kick proceedings off tomorrow evening against Tonga and we will be bringing you match reports and features on every stage of what is set to be a fantastic tournament. Make sure you keep an eye on our great Rugby Union section.

England will start their campaign and quest for a third successive final berth against rather tricky opposition in Argentina. The pumas have given England a run for their money is recent clashes and even recorded a victory not too long ago

Front Up Rugby are also marking the event with an exclusive new range of t-shirts, polos & hoodies to celebrate the occasion. We’re not in the business of salesy articles here at Young Academic but we reckon they are well worth a look.

The collection consists of 7 t-shirts, 3 polo-shirts (both 100% cotton) and 2 hoodies all with a soft-wash creating a luxury feel and a fashion fit. The collection is split into 4 pieces with England, New Zealand and Japanese inspired designs. Including: Ruck & Maul polo, heritage Auckland ’87 shirt and Heavens Game t-shirt. This limited edition range sits alongside the brands existing collection.

England rugby international, James Haskell recently joined the Company’s Board as an Executive Director. Best known as one of Europe’s top flankers, Haskell appears in the promotional images for the newly launched RWC has also invested in the brand. The exclusive Rugby World Cup range launches this month to celebrate the forthcoming RWC in New Zealand.

“The collection was designed for this special event and we feel confident the range will have something that suits every fan. Everyone is so excited about the Rugby World at Front Up and we will be supporting all the way,” says Jon Allen, Managing Director of Front Up Rugby.

James Haskell stated “It’s been great working with the Front Up guys on this project – I have been tracking the business for the last couple of years and really excited to be involved. I believe we can create a seriously innovative fashion brand initially in rugby orientated clothing but long term on every High Street”

Anyway, enough of the promo and on with the ruggur! Young Academic will be following the boys every step of the way and would also like to know your thoughts as the competition progresses.
