Please see below for the latest update from our courier, Royal Mail regarding potential delays with their service:

Royal Mail is working hard to deliver the most comprehensive and high quality service we can to all our customers, large and small. The combination of greatly increased uptake of online Christmas shopping, in no small part driven by the recent lockdown, and the ongoing COVID restrictions mean that all delivery companies are experiencing exceptionally high volumes this year.

Every single parcel, letter and card is important to us. Despite our best efforts and significant investment in extra resource, some customers may experience slightly longer delivery timescales than our usual service standards. This is due to the exceptionally high volumes we are seeing, exacerbated by the coronavirus-related measures we have put in place in local mail centres and delivery offices. In such cases, we always work hard to get back to providing our usual level of service as quickly as we can. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

Our Edinburgh store will close at 4pm on Thursday 24th December, and remain closed until Saturday 16th January at the earliest, in line with current government guidelines.


First XV Rugbystuff.com would like to wish all our customers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
