Gilbert rugby balls have been synonymous with the game since its inception in 1823. Always at the forefront of innovation, in 1875, the first rubber bladder was invented and the modern rugby ball evolved to improve passing and handling. 

Gilbert strive to continually innovate manufacturing technology that ensures performance, consistency and precision when producing rugby balls. Extensive research and development continues to see GILBERT lead the way in rugby ball manufacture and all other areas of rugby equipment, continuing to maintain the highest standards set by James Gilbert two centuries ago.

First in 1823… foremost ever since.
