Brand Story

William Gilbert was already supplying balls to Rugby School in 1823, when William Webb Ellis first picked up and ran with the ball. The game of Rugby Football and the original rugby brand were born; these early balls were larger and rounder than those used today.

In 1981 the brand embraced and perfected the use of new synthetic technologies in its new Barbarian ball and expanded into wider areas of rugby equipment, footwear and clothing .

To this day the brand continues to seek new and innovative ways to develop superior rugby specific products; this can be seen in the technology worked into the Match-XV match ball, the official match ball of the Rugby World Cup 2015.
