Can't believe I can get the ball similar to Gilbert for the ideal price
Good training ball...
I bought one of these balls for training with kids and I've been impressed. Good grip and flies well. Have recently bought another because I got my first one signed by some pro players so had to protect it! Size 4 ball is also excellent for use in touch rugby.
Bought for my son's birthday and he is very pleased with it.
Good quality, value for money match ball. Used regularly since purchase to good effect by my u15 side.

Not all of our balls are made in the same way. The panels can be stitched in different ways: machine stitched or hand stitched for better resistance to wear, better shape retention and better performance.A ball's grip is what lets you control it when passing and receiving.
As a beginner, you'll want a fun ball that's easy to handle: get something light and grippy from the 100 or 300 range
If you train or play matches regularly, you'll need a durable ball that stays inflated and is comfortable on both your hands and feet. The 500 and 900 ranges are just your thing.
If you play matches every week, you'll need a ball that performs for both throws and kicks. We recommend a ball from the 900 range. These balls are heavier, balanced to make them more accurate, and give you good control
