About Us 

First XV is a family run business set up in 2000 with rugby at its core. The brief then, which we stick to today, was to set up a specialist rugby store that would cater to Edinburgh's fanatical rugby enthusiasts who we felt were being left out by the big chain sports shops.  Whether a player, supporter or a team, we are here to cater to your rugby needs.  In 2006 we stepped up our web presence and today can cater to rugby fans not just in the UK but world wide.


We have only and will only ever stock Authentic and Official Rugby merchandise and kit dealing direct with the world's most prestigious rugby brands such as Adidas, Asics, Canterbury, Macron, Mizuno, Opro and Under Armour.


All the staff and partners at First XV have a rugby background. We have first hand experience of playing rugby and the many injuries suffered along the way. We have playing experience in every position on the pitch, from prop to wing and nippers in minis as well. Therefore our life experience makes us personally qualified to give out the best advice about our product range from rugby boots to shoulder and head protection.
