SANZAR (South Africa, New Zealand and Australia Rugby) commissioned Blue Sky to create a new icon for a revamped Super Rugby competition. The trophy has been designed to reflect the core elements of Rugby – tradition, physical toughness, camaraderie, and skill. The shape of the trophy is centered around three curved legs, with each leg representing each of the conferences involved in the competition.
At 65 cm tall and made from sold stainless steel, the trophy has a strong visual presence, and is an iconic symbol of the Super Rugby competition. The model making team at Box & Dice manufactured the trophy to their usual exacting standards.
SANZAR CEO, Greg Peters, said “The champions trophy is the ‘big one’, and will become the ultimate symbol of Super Rugby supremacy in the years to come.”
The colour on each leg corresponds to the Conferences with gold for Australia, black for New Zealand, and green for South Africa.
