RFU Championship Trophy

With the re-organisation of the league structure in English rugby, the RFU created The Championship, the league directly below the Aviva Premiership. Having already made the trophies for the other national Leagues, Thomas Lyte were commissioned by the Rugby Football Union to make the largest version possible for the same design and the result was this 65cms trophy, made entirely from sterling silver with gold plated highlights. The Championship is now sponsored by Greene King, and the winner not only receives this beautiful piece of silverware, but also gets promoted to the Premiership.
