It's official! We are beyond excited to announce the onboarding of our's and Canterbury's newest brand ambassador, Ray Barkwill!
Ray is a retired Canadian rugby union player who played for a number of teams before ending his career at Seattle Seawolves of Major League Rugby where he helped win the inaugural title including scoring a try in the final!
Ray Barkwill says: "I’m very happy to partner with The Rugby Shop and Canterbury. The Rugby Shops investment into grassroots rugby is one that aligns with me and what I think North America needs more of. To also partner up with Canterbury as a brand ambassador is very exciting. They are the face of rugby branding, and a symbol that is legendary and recognizable amongst rugby players."
Jason "JMAC" Macdonald adds: "Ray and the Ray Barkwill Frontrow Group exemplify the core values of rugby that The Rugby Shop and the Canterbury brand were also founded upon. We look forward to growing this partnership with them and its impact on growing our game within grassroots, BC rugby communities and beyond for years to come.
