In celebration of the Rugby World Cup, builders’ merchant Jewson has created a giant cup of its own.

Inspired by a builder’s brew, the giant mug was revealed by international rugby star Neil Back in the home town of the sport, Rugby, last week.

Standing at 2 metres high and with capacity for 2,800 litres of tea, it’s set to be the biggest cup in sport this year.

Neil Back said: “Some say the Webb Ellis Trophy is Rugby’s biggest prize, but this is literally the biggest cup in Rugby right now.

“It was a big task to tackle but after several trys, Jewson has created a true homage to one of Britain’s greatest passions - tea - and also rugby.”
