Rugby in Canada is a sport of devotion and perseverance. Canadian Rugby, in fact, is a squad with consistent international contention. They have been in each of the Rugby World Cups, and they even entered into the quarterfinals in the first ever RWC in 1987.

Celebrate the history of Rugby Canada with this handcrafted vintage leather ball commemorating the history of the team. Created by Gilbert Rugby using the traditional methods that reach back nearly 200 years the Vintage Rugby Canada ball is made of premium leather using the same techniques that William Gilbert used all those years ago when he made the first rugby ball for Rugby school in 1823.

A wonderful rugby memorabilia that makes a great decorative piece for any lover of the game.

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.
