For what it’s worth Nike do very little rugby gear it’s not their market.
Adidas do the All Blacks can’t think of who else.
If either of these do did the kit you would be looking at a minimum of 20% price rise for fan kit, the BMW factor, then watch the brown stuff hit the whirly thing.
Samurai are a more traditional rugby supplier, on the occasions I have had to buy their kit for personal or club use I have found it to be well priced and good quality .
All imo of course
All Blacks and their super rugby sides, Harlequins and Munster are the top sides. Sponsor athletes such as Youngs, Itoje and Croft before he retired.

Tbf Adidas is losing interest, no longer do Lions, France, Italy or the Stormers.

TBF - JP14 you are correct, they even sponsor our own Ben Youngs and George Ford so that was incorrect on my part.
The personal sponsorship does tend to be more towards footwear and leisure sports gear, and I wouldn’t say that rugby strips was something they were looking to grow, the global appeal that football has just isn’t there, and rugby isn’t yet that big in the all important North American market

What do people think of Samurai?
Is this a hint as to who the new provider will be RagingBull?

Adidas would be the dream. They’ve in the last two years begun providing Leinster’s kits along with Munster, Quins, the ABs and NZ Super Rugby sides. Also recently missed out on the bidding for England’s rights which went to Umbro by all accounts.

I was really disappointed by the quality of my Canterbury England shirt for the recent World Cup.

Umbro? They haven’t done rugby kits this side of the millenium?

Having Umbro won't go down well with the traditionalists.
My lad used to find their moulded boots comfortable for football and often used them for rugger when it firmed up and back then the lads from the posh schools had no idea what the brand was with it being more high street.

Not going to lie but I couldn’t see Adidas doing England, as in I just think it wouldn’t have worked.

Thought the Bristol Kit looks quality, then I learned they make their own kit

Perhaps we should do likewise ???
