Gilbert X Rodd & Gunn Collection Release

Gilbert X Rodd & Gunn Collection

15th February 2023
Inspired by a game so influential to New Zealand’s heritage, Rodd & Gunn has teamed up with Gilbert to present a new collection inspired by rugby.

According to legend, the sport rugby was born in 1823 when schoolboy William Webb Ellis, with a fine disregard for the rules of football, took the ball in his arms and ran with it. The ball in question was a Gilbert, made by William Gilbert, and the name has been synonymous with the game ever since.

For 200 years, generations of rugby players of all ages and skill levels have relied on the quality and precision of Gilbert rugby balls to stay on the pitch.

Now, this unbroken heritage extends to an exclusive clothing collaboration with Rodd & Gunn, representing a new level of expert craftsmanship and uncompromising quality for all rugby enthusiasts off the field.
