WRU extends Reebok deal
Gareth Thomas models the Wales kit
Wales' relationship with Reebok will run until 2008
Wales have signed a four-year, multi-million pound extension to their deal with shirt manufacturer Reebok, which will run until 2008.

"This is great news and evidence of the growing commercial strength of our produce," said Welsh Rugby Union group chief executive David Moffett.

Moffett is also confident a new shirt sponsor will be unveiled shortly.

The deal with current sponsors Rockport runs out at the end of the summer tour to Argentina and S Africa.

The new deal with Reebok means that the WRU will have been commercial partners with the sportswear company for 12 years and more than 100 international matches.

"Reebok is one of the world's great sports brand companies and we take it as a great compliment that they value their association with the WRU and the Welsh team so highly," said Moffett.

In turn Reebok said they were delighted to be associated with Welsh rugby.

"Reebok is very proud to announce this extension to its long standing relationship with the WRU," said Reebok UK managing director Dave Singleton.

"We feel the current team is on the verge of a major breakthrough thanks in no small part to the good work of Steve Hansen and his coaching team."
