Gilbert Sirius Match Rugby Ball


Gilbert Sirius Rugby Match Ball

The Sirius Rugby Match ball by Gilbert is truly a ball worthy of the best players in the game. Gilbert designed the Sirius Match Ball to be used during the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

It's designed with new technology to enhance grip and disperse water. This ball is made with a Hypernova grip, and G-XV rubber compound. Fundamental changes in how the dimples are applied improves the grip of the ball. The SIRIUS exhibits a sharper, more defined bump which provides greater grip and control, especially in wet conditions. The improvements have been made on a microscopic level to increase both the definition and surface area of each pimple, whilst maintaining the durability and aerodynamic characteristics of the current MATCH-XV. The Ellipse Truflight valve and copolymer Air-loc bladder improve rotational stability and air retention. The Sirius Match Ball is constructed with reaction laminate, and hand-stitched to ensure high quality. Conforms to World Rugby Standards.

Ball Care:

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.
