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.
