Gilbert

.Gilbert are delighted to be the Official Ball and Rugby Clothing Partner of Premiership Rugby and continue to work closely with them in key initiatives helping to develop and encourage rugby throughout the country. Gilbert Rugby has over 180 years of rugby heritage. When the ‘inventor of the game’ William Webb Ellis picked up the ball and ran with it on the Close at Rugby School in 1823, it was a Gilbert ball he chose. Since that eventful day, Gilbert have supplied balls to teams from all Nations, at all levels and are proud to be the Official Ball Supplier for an unprecedented 6th consecutive Rugby World Cup in 2015, in England. It is Gilbert’s constant research and development that has maintained the brand as the number one choice in Europe and of the major rugby nations. Not only does Gilbert manufacture the finest rugby balls, there is an extensive range of clothing, footwear, body armour and rugby equipment that is used by club and international players worldwide. The product range includes lightweight, high performance rugby boots, impact-absorbing body armour and a complete range of training equipment and clothing.

Gilbert is truly an International brand name, which you will always find at ‘the heart of the game’.
