Makers of The European Rugby Continental Shield

Thomas Lyte are proud to continue their partnership with The Works and European Professional Club Rugby as the Makers of The European Rugby Continental Shield. This tournament was first announced in 2014 to sit alongside the European Rugby Champions Cup and Challenge Cup competitions but re-branded in 2017. The tournament features clubs that have qualified from the domestic leagues of Rugby Europe members.

Standing at 60cm tall and weighing 4kg in weight, this shield was handcrafted in our London workshop by our skilled craftsmen. Featuring engraved rugby balls on an gold plated centre, this shield reflects the glory of the tournament.  

This competition has succeed at widening the footprint of club rugby across Europe both for emerging and established clubs.
