The Ball. The oval shape. The central element to the game of rugby, the design thereof is vital, to encapsulate movement, power, balance and unity. This is achieved through the integration of colour and use of space, layered on the specific manufacturer's texture and emphasis on brand delivery of tournament. Differentiation through design is evident in the chronology of tournament balls displayed.
With the 2013/14 season, ERC enters the 5th year of using adidas equipment and the Ball's unique design continues to be inspired to reflect the colour and passion of the tournament.
