Queen Elizabeth Grammar School (QEGS) Rugby

The boys of Queen Elizabeth Grammar School in Wakefield, West Yorkshire are a force to be reckoned with both in the classroom and on the pitch.

Regular finalists in the prestigious Under 18’s Nat West Schools Cup tournament at Twickenham and two time victors of the Under 15 Cup, their dedication to the sport is enough to imagine just how grueling their training schedule must be.

The Problem

It’s no secret that rugby is a physically punishing sport, with forceful tackles, vigorous scrums and hard impacts with the turf a foregone conclusion for each match.

When competing at the top level of school rugby, it’s crucial that the players avoid unnecessary injury caused by equipment. Not only are they representing their institution on the pitch, but they’re also in the midst of their most crucial educational years.

The Solution

Safety Pads UK manufactured four sets of triband post protectors for the QEGS Rugby Pitch in the school’s trademark black and amber colours. The high impact foam interior is ideal for protecting the players during such a physical game. In addition, the striking school colours make the pitch look professional, ready for hosting those all-important home fixtures.


Nobody does safety padding quite like us. We are the leading manufacturer of bespoke safety solutions in many industries around the world, from sports to construction to education, and we’ve built that reputation single-handedly since 2002.
