The Blacktown Rugby Union Football Club (BRUFC) Warriors are kicking goals on and off the field, thanks to a new partnership with Australian menswear brand Johnny Bigg.
After a successful start to the season with three of their four teams undefeated, the Warriors are scoring high in the style stakes after partnering with Johnny Bigg, the only brand in the Southern Hemisphere that caters for big and tall men.
The Blacktown Rugby Union Football Club are proud to partner with the local Johnny Bigg Blacktown store, which has given some of the club’s star players new winter clothing, swapping the uniform for a sharp new look.
Among those players, includes Club President Scott Riley who recently became only the 12th person in the club’s history to play 250 games for the team.
“This has been a great opportunity for the Club, Johnny Bigg’s range is well-suited to Rugby players, especially guys like me who are well-over 6 foot in height’, Scott said.
The new partnership with Johnny Bigg has made shopping easy for the Warriors, with the range offering specialized sizing of size XL upwards to 8XL.
The Johnny Bigg Blacktown store, which is located at Westpoint Shopping Centre, opened in 2015 and is a part of a rapid expansion planned for the brand across Australia. With quality and affordable clothing available in-store and online, Johnny Bigg is aiming to have a minimum of 25 stores open by June 2017.
With all eyes set on the premiership this season, the Warriors couldn’t be more pleased with its latest partnership, proving to be a win-win for both the store and the club.
This partnership with Johnny Bigg will see the team join the ranks of NRL legends, such as George Rose, Sam Kasiano, Frank Pritchard, Jamal Idris, Marty Kapow, Dan Hunt, Tariq Sims, Kevin Galloway, Dan Conn and radio host Gus Worland, as well as TV personality Big T (Australian X Factor Finalist).
Yesterday the Warriors take on Macquarie University Rugby Club at the Macquarie University Sports Fields. When there clubs met in the first round it was a clean sweep by Blacktown, and the same result was achieved in their second meeting with First, Second and Third grade walking away with the win and Fourth grade enjoying the week off with a bye.
