Major League Rugby has announced Rhino Rugby as its official ball and technical training equipment supplier for the 2020 season.
The London-based Rhino Rugby will provide the Vortex Elite ball as the official MLR match balls for all 12 teams, as well as Hurricane practice balls and innovative ruck and hit shields.
The third MLR season begins on February 8 and many MLR teams have already begun their preseasons with the new Rhino equipment. George Killebrew replaced Dean Howes as MLR commissioner in December.
Rhino Rugby is currently the official supplier of scrummaging machines, contact and training equipment to England Rugby, the Welsh Rugby Union, Bath, London Wasps, Cardiff Blues, and St. Helens Rugby League Club.
