Thomas Lyte are proud to be the workshop to be chosen and entrusted with any repairs or restoration work required on the Webb Ellis Cup, the World Cup of rugby. This antique trophy was first made in 1906, and first used in 1987 when the Rugby World Cup was held in New Zealand. Since that time, the trophy has been held aloft by the winning captains of just four different countries, including Martin Johnson of England in 2003. The Rugby World Cup returns to England in September 2015, and once again, Thomas Lyte will be available should any work be needed prior to or during the tournament itself.
“Rugby World Cup Limited has worked closely with Thomas Lyte for a number of years over a number of projects, most importantly in relation to the Webb Ellis Cup ensuring it is maintained in the best possible condition at all times. Thomas Lyte has always provided exceptional levels of service, going out of their way to assist with any request in any given timeframe. The skilled silversmiths have always taken enormous pride in the work they undertake on the Webb Ellis Cup and always complete jobs on time and within the agreed budget. RWCL will continue to use Thomas Lyte in the coming years and I would have no hesitation in recommending them”.
