Used everywhere from the youth to professional levels, the Gilbert WRS A-XV Rugby Ball is ideal for clubs of all ages and sizes.
The Gilbert A-XV is designed with cost and durability in mind. The A-XV features a Hydratec barrier, a technical fabric that utilizes a water resistant lamination to protect the ball from the elements by repelling dirt and water. The A-XV grip features standard rubber dimples evenly distributed at a uniform height throughout the ball to ensure maximum comfort. All Gilbert balls are hand stitched to ensure quality and care.
Sizes: WRS A-XV comes in size 3 (recommended for ages 7-10), size 4 (ages 11-13), and size 5 (ages 14-Senior).

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.
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 the needle isn’t inserted into the bladder. If you hear air escaping, you haven’t put the needle all the way into the bladder of the ball.
