When considering the best apparel partner we consider the quality, range and price of the product, and commitment to providing the best service possible. Samurai demonstrate that they value the partnership with the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union and are committed to supporting us with their production expertise and fantastic teamwear products both on and off the field. In addition, the Bay of Plenty Rugby Union wanted to align with an apparel partner that shared our vision and aspirations. It is clear that Samurai are motivated and share similar values and aspirations. This alignment is important. This, combined with our excitement to see the progression of Samurai working directly in New Zealand and the Samurai business developing its multi-sport aspirations, gives us great confidence in a very successful long-term relationship.
