The Rugby Hive G-TR4000 Size 5 Rugby Ball

The Rugby Hive G-TR4000 Size 5 Rugby Ball

"Welcome to the Hive!" This Gilbert G-TR4000 training ball is designed specifically for those who love rugby details, specifically the stories of rugby legends shared in the Rugby Hive podcasts.  

Featuring Gilbert'snewly patented Triangular surface grip pattern, the G-TR4000 represents a major step forward in grip technology on training balls. Tests have shown that this new, more defined pattern is hard wearing and allows the player more surface area contact with the ball when handling. Hydratec technical fabrics and waterproof laminations have been installed to enhance the life and performance of the ball. A 3 ply poly-cotton and cotton laminate panel means that the ball will weigh slightly more,  perform better on longer kicks and passes, and generally hold it's shape better than a ball of 2 ply construction. The durable rubber surface makes for a long lasting practice ball.
