Playing and training again! But that doesn’t stop you needing the right stash to take you from couch to clubhouse. Don’t take our word for it…

Here’s Ospreys back row giant and Canterbury Ambassador Justin Tipuric with his top 8 bits of kit, for BT Sports and chill.

Ideal for daily rugby workouts, these lightweight men’s shorts in static marl give you ultimate comfort with a casual style.

Feel warm and comfortable whether you’re on or off the rugby field with these men’s tapered cuff fleece pants. Blended cotton with a brushed back lock in heat, providing warmth when you need it most while a soft fleecy interior adds and extra layer of comfort.
