PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Official CCC British and Irish Lions Thrillseeker Origin Rugby Ball

Attention: This ball is made specifically for the British and Irish Lions 2021 tour of South Africa, an event which happens only every 4 years.

This British and Irish Lions thrill seeker origin rugby ball is designed by Canterbury for everyday use and training. The synthetic compound rubber surface and mid panel valve make this ball extremely durable. The internal latex bladder enhances shape retention and limits the need to inflate as often. The vibrant British and Irish Lions emblem, iconic CCC logo, and stand out graphic design make this ball easy to spot and a unique talking piece.

The Lions rugby union team, made up of players eligible for the national teams England, Scotland, Wales and Ireland was founded in 1888 as Shaw and Shrewsbury Team. At that time, it consisted mostly of English players and some from Scotland and Wales. Later, the team’s name became British Isles and then British Lions was adopted. Prior to the 2001 tour of Australia, the official name became the British and Irish Lions, and has remained so since. Today, the squad consisting of players from all the Home Nations anxiously awaits its upcoming 2021 tour of South Africa in July.

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.

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.
