Cooks islands Rugby Union
In 2018, the Cook Islands Rugby Union engaged the services and product for R80 to kit out our national Men’s First XV team for Rugby World Cup Qualifier matches v Hong Kong on 30 June 2018 and 7 July 2018. Service and response from R80 were top notch and we really pressed them regarding turnaround times. Nevertheless, they were able to come up with all the kit that was ordered and gave some very favourable discounts due to the amount of our order. The gear itself is top quality.
The Playing Strip: Characteristically tight fit, the material used was flexible and fitted comfortably on the players as if they were a second skin without feeling or looking claustrophobic. The material itself feels very durable and very light, perfect for the climates in which they were used – Rarotonga, Cook Islands and then Hong Kong where it is both very hot and muggy. Visually the gear looked great and were customised to our specifications along with including sponsors and the appropriate logos and placements. Very professional and highly recommended. The ancillary gear (off-field gear), training equipment, recovery equipment was all well marked and will also be of great use for years to come. The off-field and training apparel matched each other well and brought a professional look to our national team whether they were training, playing or travelling. Easy to deal with, service is fantastic and accommodating for the needs of any professional or national team and sport.

Counties Manukau Referees
"A year ago we were on the hunt for a new referee uniform. After several samples and quotes from various sports apparel companies, we simply could not look past R80 Rugby. They had everything and more, what we were after. We had the luxury of designing our own uniform and whatever we suggested, they simply ran with it and made it work. The quality is second to none!! No matter the forecast, we stay comfortable and get on with the task. Glenn and his factory crew is easy to work with. They are always friendly and accommodate us at any time. The feedback we receive on a weekly basis about the uniform quality, how sharp we look, and bang for our buck has exceeded, and still is exceeding our expectations. It is a easy decision really - Go R80!! "
Brandon Roberts Counties Manukau Rugby Referees Association
Hato Paora College
" We have had fantastic experiences dealing with Glenn and the R80 team over the last two years. Right from the start, we had nothing but great service from the R80 team. We were delighted by the final products R80 produced. Our Playing kit design had some intricate Maori designs that look amazing. We often get comments from opposition teams about our kit. Timeframes were always met, and the quality of the final products to a high standard.
We highly recommend R80 products to any organisation".

Northland Rugby Union
"R80 training equipment has been integral to Northland Rugby's NPC Taniwha training program. The power bands have been indispensable, aiding recovery and travel. Their portability is a huge plus, making them fantastic for game day warm-ups. The hit shields are compact and incredibly transportable, making them perfect for multi-team use. They've added an extra level of versatility to our training sessions. And the Turtle Shell has been a great product for our back 3 players, providing crucial cover during high ball practice. Our experience with R80's products has been really good. They've made a real difference in the development and preparation of our athletes. If you're looking to elevate your training program, I highly recommend R80 products."
