The rigid TPU board insole with forefoot flex ensures players have the ultimate agility and movement around their opponents without compromising comfort. The EVA footbed offers excellent cushioning however is also completely removable if necessary to make way for orthopaedic insoles that players may have.

The 8-stud design has been traditionally worn by the tight five--the locks, props, and hooker--who need maximum traction. Perfect for driving straight through a ruck, mauling down field, or holding your ground in the scrum.
