“We greatly look forward to continuing our partnership with them for another two years to further grow and develop our RBS 6 Nations range of supporter wear.”

Martin Aynsley, managing director of BrandCo Management, adds: “The RBS 6 Nations tournament, with its distinctive logo, is recognised as one of the world’s most prestigious rugby tournaments and the logo is instantly recognised by rugby supporters of all nations.
