Gilbert have designed the perfect mascot ball to signify the central involvement of Japan in the 2019 Rugby World Cup and their culture.
This year, the RWC mascots are Ren and G, also known as Ren-G, two lion like creature's one red and one white.
In Japan, the Shishi are sacred mythical creatures that have been known to ward off evil whilst bringing happiness in Japan since ancient times. They are known to take on different forms so when this ancient spirit met the five values of rugby: integrity, passion, solidarity, discipline and respect, Ren-G was born to spread the spirit of rugby from Japan to the rest of the world.
The RWC Mascot Balls are double sided with the mascot in red on one side and white on the other holding the RWC match ball.
Available in size 5, the mascot ball is a perfect piece of memorabilia for the Rugby World Cup for both children and adults.
If you are looking for the perfect fun rugby ball incorporating the ancient cultures from across the globe. The RWC 2019 Mascot Ball is exactly what you need.
