PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Official Gilbert Blue Atom Rugby Ball

Gilbert, the most trusted brand for rugby balls, has designed a new ball for ultimate match performance in all conditions.

The Atom Match ball features G-SR rubber compound surface for enhanced grip and Gilbert's Truflight valve, a unique valve shape and placement that redistributes weight along the seams of the ball to improve rotational stability. 3 ply poly-cotton and cotton laminate panel gives the ball slightly more weight. The ball enhances kicking accuracy, and generally hold its shape better than a ball of 2 ply construction.

Ball Care:

  • Inflate to 9.5 psi using a hand pump
  • Prior to training or match, use a soft cloth, light detergent and warm water to remove dirt and residue from your rugby ball. This ensures that the grip remains in prime condition for maximum length of time.
  • Store in a dry environment

HOW TO INFLATE A RUGBY BALL

1. In order to get the needle into the ball, dampen the needle with water.

2. The valve for the ball is situated in the main panel, but on the match balls the valve is hidden in the seam.

How to inflate a rugby ball instruction

3. Make sure there is enough space for the needle to go all the way in without touching the facing inside wall of the ball. Not doing this may puncture the ball from the inside. Hold the neck of the valve with two fingers. Pinch it, wet the needle and slide it in.

4. It also helps to grip the entry point from underneath to make sure the needle goes all the way in.

5. The most mentioned problem when inflating balls is that air is "leaking" out of the ends. This is normal when a ball is just being inflated as the bladder and panels are not connected. This is air being pressed out of the ends as the bladder expands. It should stop shortly as the ball inflates.
