Tuilagi’s Return and Other Rugby Cleat Spottings
Posted: March 24, 2014 at 10:31 pm
Manu Tuilagi made a triumphant return to the Leicester Tigers starting XV. The England international has been out since September with a pectoral injury and wasted no time, scoring the first try, showcasing why he has been missed. The center ran past the Chief’s Jack Nowell in his adidas Adizero RS7 PRO XTRX rugby cleats for his 14th try in 48 Aviva Premiership matches.
Will Hooley made his 1st Premiership start at fly-half for Northampton Saints and kick 2 penalties but it was not enough as the side dropped only their 2nd match of the season. But it hurt as it dropped them to 2nd place on the Aviva Premiership table. He did his damage in the adidas Predator LZ TRX.
Saracens reclaimed the top spot on the table with their 39-17 win over Harlequins in front of a world record crowd of 83,889 at Wembley. Owen Farrell in his Nike Tiempo Legend V in the Total Crimson colorway led the way with 1 try, 3 conversions, and 2 penalties.
George Ford kicked for 24 points in his adidas Incurza TRX SG II rugby cleats as Bath strengthened their bid for a top-4 finish with a 44-23 win over London Irish.
The USA Eagles showed well at the Tokyo 7s. The Eagles lost 17-12 to eventually runners-up South Africa in the Cup quarterfinals. South Africa’s Seabelo Senatla used the kicking touch of the new Nike silo, the Hypervenom, in the match. The defending champions Blitzbokke lost in a 9-try thriller to Fiji. The U.S. lost to Australia 17-12 in the Plate Final.
