Games Diary - Day 7

Posted by Vicky Paterson on 7/30/2014 to Commonwealth Games 2014
A week ago today the Games roared into life among dancing teacakes, tartan and Scottie Dogs.  After a sad but well fought defeat to England in the Women's Hockey, Day 7 was all about the Athletics, and diving.  Plus a cheeky potential comment from star Usain Bolt, but as it is being vehemently denied we won't go into that.

Games Diary - Days 5 & 6

There has been so much positive feedback from people who have visited Glasgow during the Commonwealth Games.  We knew all along that it was a brilliant and vibrant place full of friendly people but for visitors to be experiencing that as well is great to see.

Games Diary - Day 2

Posted by Vicky Paterson on 7/25/2014 to Commonwealth Games 2014

 



I read a quote today in a newspaper which described the joy that comes with watching events like the Commonwealth Games.  The journalist described how you watch events you wouldn't normally take an active interest in and yet with people gathering from around the world you get caught up in the atmosphere of it all. That couldn't be more apt for the feeling in Glasgow at the moment, the city is buzzing and it is great to see so many nationalities all gathering for one reason! The on going heat wave in Glasgow has brought the crowds out, and with the crowds gathering at Commonwealth events, and the weather set to get even hotter this weekend is sure to bring out a great atmosphere in the city and some great sporting moments.  Day two of the Games saw our teamwear alliance Scottish Hockey in action as well as in cycling, swimming and weightlifting. 

Games Diary - The Opening Ceremony & Day 1

Posted by Vicky Paterson on 7/25/2014 to Commonwealth Games 2014

The Glasgow Commonwealth Games kicked off on Wednesday night in spectacular fashion, showcasing some iconic Scottish cliches. Danny Boyles London 2012 extravaganza was always going to be a tough act to follow and to the credit of the Glasgow 2014 organisers they didn't attempt to replicate it. Instead a steady stream of tartan, bagpipes, Tunnocks teacakes and a parade of Scottish achievements is what viewers and spectators were treated to. This was Glasgow in full party mode and in typical Glaswegian style nothing was taking too seriously but instead with a great sense of humour and fun. An amazing way to kick off the next ten days of sport and celebration in the city and we are looking forward to seeing what there is to come.

This Seasons New Boots Are In - Our Guide To Buying the Right Pair


This week see’s the launch of our new range of Rugby Boots and Performance Training Wear as well as the introduction of our new brand X Blades. A brand known for its exceptional quality and design, with their boots being worn by many World Class rugby league and union players we know we are keeping good company.

Not all rugby players have the same footwear needs, and if you have never played before (or are experienced and just wondering where all the blisters are coming from) then it is important to understand which boot you need. With this in mind we thought it would be useful to introduce you to our new season offerings and give some guidance on what will work best for your game.
