SARU gunning for counterfeit merchandisers

SA Rugby has warned parents and rugby supporters to be on the lookout for unscrupulous counterfeiters gearing up for the Christmas shopping rush.

SAPA/IOL

SA Rugby’s agents confiscated R53-million’s worth of fake rugby clothing in 2008 but remain on guard for the scam artists who prey on unsuspecting rugby fans.

“If it is being sold at a traffic light or at a street corner you can be sure it’s fake,” said Andy Marinos, acting manager director of SA Rugby.

“It may be cheaper than in the stores but it is vastly inferior to the officially licensed jerseys and, frankly, isn’t even worth the cut price you’ll pay for it. We’re grateful that fans want to wear their team’s jersey but the irony is that by buying from the counterfeiters, they’re actually taking money out of the pockets of their province. Teams receive a licence fee for every official piece of merchandise that is sold – they obviously don’t get a cent from the fraudsters.”

Signet Licensing, SA Rugby’s licensing agents, worked closely with the South African Police Service, Customs and other organisations to seize a staggering 223 000 pieces of merchandise in 2008. Most of the product comes from the Far East and enters through the ports before being transported to back-street warehouses.

“Many members of the public are unaware that buying counterfeit product is a criminal activity resulting in the growth of organised crime networks and depriving the unions and the country of revenue and jobs,” said Alex Cotchobos, managing director of Signet Licensing.

“We have confiscated some major shipments and made several arrests this year but as long as the rugby supporter is happy to buy a cheap, fake jersey then the criminals will continue to provide a supply. “Our message is that true rugby fans should do themselves and their game a favour and not support crime.”

Cotchobos added that the presence of apparently genuine labelling confirming that the item was an officially licensed product should also be treated with caution as the counterfeiters also faked such devices.

“If it is cheap, if it feels cheap and if it looks cheap then it’s because it is a cheap imitation,” said Cotchobos. “It may be a tempting price but the only person winning in the transaction is some back-street criminal.”

  • I don’t for one second condone buying counterfeit products, but if the genuine article costs aroud R600, one can kind of understand why some people might be tempted to buy the counterfeit goods.

  • How do they calculate that 53 million figure? Do they use the price of what the genuine article would have cost or the price the it would have been sold for? Anyway it works out to an average of about R240 per item.

  • @McLovin (Comment 1) : with you on that score 100%. They should make their own “cheaper knock-offs” if they’re so concerned. Fact is, people cannot pay that much for a replica jersey.

  • @robdylan (Comment 3) :
    Most definitely. Good thing the Sharks are sponsored by Mr Price so they do have cheaper versions for people who can’t afford the exact replicas.

    The prices can be really steep…especially if you have a Sharks/ Springbok mad family. Can you imagine buying 5 Sharks and 5 Springbok jerseys?

But one has to ask yourself do I really need the exact same jersey (in terms of material/fabrication) as the players to sit in the stands/on the couch drinking? Probably not. :mrgreen:

  • I bought a coutnerfeit jersey about 3/4 years ago at the same time my mate bought an official jersey… it was about the time that SARU brought out that jersey that had a more woolly feel and it and had a strange darker green colour than usual.

    I’ve played a few really rough games in my jersey and it’s been washed and had beer/food spilt on it etc and it still looks pristine.

    My mate, with his official jersey, has lost both it’s shape and colour.

    Mine was £16 and his was £60…

    So feck right off Andy Marionos with your quality comment. The day you moved away from Canterbury and thought you could still charge an arm and a leg for a vastly inferior product was the last day you could throw that at us.

    BTW – I’ve worked at Canterbury and I know what they manufacture their jerseys for…

  • I just don’t know when these clowns are going to realise that we’re in the 21st century and you can get an item of clothing sent from china within a week.

    Unless the official rugby jersey has some sort of flame-retardent material that doubles as a stab vest and somehow keeps my beer in my glass I fail to see why I should pay up to 5 times the cost of ordering it from China for what is essentially the same item.

    Paying like R1,000 for a jersey I only wear a couple of times a year is expecting a little bit too much for the man in the street.

    That’s a bill of close on R3,000 for a family of four.

    Nick Mallett’s words are still so relevant.

  • Muizenberg, Lakeside, Fish Hoek and Glencairn areas are usually favourite spots for road blocks.

    Take routes like OU Kaapse Weg or Boyes Drive and avoid the main roads in addition to using highways (M3 not M5) as far as possible.

    You know what else they do in Pretoria Sauce?

    If you take a Pretorianer out to a pub to watch the Sharks play against the Bulls, they not only wear their supporters jersey, but also stand up in the middle of the game, in the middle of all the intoxicated Dutchmen (not dom dutchmen, just normal dutchies) and shout at the top of their lungs “We are black, we are white, we are fucking dynamite!”.

    Suppose that’s what a Pretoria birthright gives you… of hoe RobDylan? ;-)

  • @Worcestershire Sauce (Comment 80) :

    The last word of my previous post should give you a clue as to the Pretorianer/Durbanite I was referring to!

  • Sorry I just need to clarify… my mate, alluded to above, was born in Pretoors yet claims to be a Durbanite… hence he is supporting the Sharks in the only way he knows how – like a Pretorianer!

  • Rob,

    I think the salient point here is not where you are born but rather where you chose to reside when the choice was finally yours.

    You did return to Durbs at the first opportunity did you?
    Or did you then choose to move from Durbs back to Lions/Bulls territory?

    ;-)

    I do agree with you though – its just a game.
    Being closer to a working brewery is much more important!
