The official ball of the 2019 Rugby World Cup in Japan, Gilbert continue to be synonymous with the sport.

This short but emotive piece depicts the passion of supporting the Rugby World Cup.

The Rugby Memories launch film will form a central part of a wider campaign from Gilbert Rugby, where high profile players, international unions, grassroots partners and fans from around the world of rugby will be sharing their own rugby memories.

Andy Challis, Global Brand Manager from Gilbert said: “Wherever you play or support the game, the passion it evokes and the memories it creates are hard to forget. We want to celebrate fans of Rugby from around the world and want to use #RugbyMemories as a vehicle for that.”

This first video focuses on the 1995 Rugby World Cup, and the experience of a young boy who was desperate to get his hands on a ball.

WIN: Early next week we’ll be giving away a number of the official RWC 2019 Sirius match balls. Keep an eye on the site and our social media channels for more info.
