Beyond the Listing #1
When we stock different rugby teams, club team or international teams, we like to look at how they have done during their fixtures throughout the weeks that they play. Obviously we want to sell these garments to the fans of the respective teams, but we look 'Beyond the Listing' and track the success of each team.
The weekend of 17th-19th September 2021 saw the beginning of the Gallagher Premiership fixtures.
The first of our teams we stock is Northampton Saints, who took on Gloucester Rugby at Cinch Stadium at Franklin's Gardens. Northampton kicked off their season with a 34-20 victory - giving themselves the best start possible to make the play offs this year.
Sale Sharks took another one of our teams we stock at Absolute Rugby, Bath Rugby at AJ Bell Stadium. It took a dramatic last minute Penalty from Kieran Wilkinson snatched a 20-19 last gasp victory for Sale Sharks.
The last of our teams we look at this week, and our latest Gallagher Premiership team we stock, is the Newcastle Falcons - as they took on the Champions, Harlequins at Kingston Park Stadium. Whilst providing Quins' with a stern test, Newcastle Falcons just fell short with a 20-26 loss.
