NatWest enhances WRU ties for return of trial match

The Welsh Rugby Union has announced banking group NatWest as sponsor for the return of the Wales Senior Trial match.

Wales’ first national trial in 14 years will take place at the Liberty Stadium, Swansea, on Friday evening, with two teams of “Probables” and “Possibles” staking their claims for a place in the national team’s touring party for the forthcoming two-Test series in South Africa.

NatWest’s branding will feature on the jerseys of both teams for the match, which will be broadcast live by public-service broadcaster BBC Wales.

The deal builds upon the WRU's longstanding relationship with NatWest, which includes title sponsorship of the RugbyForce grassroots initiative that launched in 2009.
