Says Simon Fowler, creative co-founder, Abel: “It’s been one of many great projects we’ve worked on with F45. Bringing Dan & Richie onboard during what’s arguably one of the most exciting times for the world of rugby is a fantastic way to unite our F45 communities around the sport. Also a great piece to launch our presence in NZ.”
Says Josh Garber, brand director, F45: “Richie and Dan’s illustrious rugby careers are nothing short of inspirational – they have proven themselves as leaders time and time again.
