France 6 Nations Sirius Match Ball
France 6 Nations Sirius Match Ball
For the first time ever Gilbert have introduced the official Guinness Six Nations match balls available for purchase. Own a piece of 'Rugby's Greatest Championship' history with the official match ball from your favourite nation.
Very rarely available, these official Guinness Six Nations match balls are provided pre-inflated, with an official certificate of authenticity and there are only a limited number available this year, exclusive through gilbertrugby.com. Each ball features the official match design for each of the host unions, with official championship branding and include all of the elite performance of the famous Sirius match ball.
Here, we introduce the France 6 Nations Sirius Match Ball. France have won the Six Nations Championship tournament on 5 occasions, with 3 of those being Grand Slams - the pinnacle of Northern Hemisphere rugby.
The France Sirius Match Ball features the powerful French blue ellipse trims with the famous gallic red rooster sitting proudly in the centre and the official France 2 branding.
The Sirius match ball takes its name from the brightest star in the sky, visible from both the Southern and Northern hemispheres; the ball represents the coming together of the best rugby players from across the globe. Sirius is also the 7th closest star from planet Earth, representative of the 7th generation of Gilbert Rugby World Cup match balls.
Well respected as the best match ball in world rugby, the Sirius comprises an enhanced grip pattern which includes two star shaped pimples of different heights to maximise grip and aid water dispersion without compromising durability and aerodynamics. These represent the fact that the Sirius Star is made up of a main sequence star, Sirius A and a faint dwarf companion, Sirius B.
If you want to own an iconic piece of rugby magic, as the ultimate French Supporter, it doesn't get better than the France 6 Nations Sirius Match Ball.
