We have just had a notification that there are boots out in use that are illegal for Rugby but acceptable for football. These boots have a single stud in the toe as exampled by the following photo.
Many of you will not realise that the position of this stud on its own can inflict a variety of injuries and they do not conform to the IRB regulations for Rugby Boots. Please read our advice on choosing boots and also our information on studs. Both of these give you guidance. If you have further questions please do drop us a line and we will endeavour to answer your questions.
