The MIAA is pleased to announce that Rhino Rugby will be the official ball sponsor of the 2019 MIAA Rugby Tournament. Inspired by Rugby’s 200 year heritage, Rhino has created an authentic culture for those with integrity & determination. “Rhino Rugby USA are pleased to be the official rugby ball sponsor of the 2019 MIAA Rugby Tournament,” said Kent Oszmanski, North American Sales Manager.

Rhino Rugby will be providing Rhino Vortex Elite match balls, one of the most exclusive rugby balls on the market. The Rhino Vortex Elite Match ball, which is currently the official ball supplier of Rugby Europe and Asia Rugby, has patented aerodynamic properties. In 2018 Oxford vs Cambridge Varsity Match Oxford 38 beat Cambridge 16. The Oxford kicker was 6 out of 6, Cambridge was 4 out of 4 from spots all over the pitch.

In addition to the Rhino Vortex Elite match balls, Rhino Rugby is offering significant discounts on rugby equipment and uniforms exclusive to MIAA Member Schools. “We are the only rugby company that can take care of 100% of your needs with balls, training equipment, scrummaging equipment, and much more,” said Kent.
