Gilbert is the official ball supplier of the 2011 Rugby World Cup in New Zealand. In celebration of the tournament, Gilbert has created the RWC 2011 FLAG BALL, which features the RWC logo, Gilbert branding, as well as the featured country's colors and flag.
Says the RWCL Chairman Bernard Lapasset about Gilbert Balls:
"Gilbert is a brand that is synonymous with the Rugby World Cup, having supplied balls for the Tournament since 1995, RWCL is delighted to be extending the relationship with a partner that has proven to be both a strong supporter of the tournament and the world leader in rugby ball performance"
