Jewson unveils its own rugby cup

Published:  28 September, 2015

In celebration of the Rugby World Cup, builders' merchant Jewson has created a giant cup of its own.

Inspired by a builder's brew, the giant mug was unveiled by international rugby star Neil Back, in Rugby on the 23 September.

During the event, Mr Back was on hand to meet rugby fans and customers at the branch. The builders' merchant also gave customers the opportunity to have their photo taken with the structure and provided those attending with much-needed free tea and coffee.

Mr Back said: "Some say the Webb Ellis Trophy is Rugby's biggest prize, but this is literally the biggest cup in Rugby right now. It was a big task to tackle but after several trys, Jewson has created a true homage to one of Britain's greatest passions… tea. And also Rugby. I'm not sure if this will fit in my trophy cabinet though."
