How Can You Let Your MOD size Pro Grip Rugby League Ball Last Long?

In the exuberance of making it to the big league, he practices a bit too hard these days, and that has led to literal ‘destruction’ of 3 rugby training balls.

The Basic Knowledge

Every rugby league ball that is used in the AFL league is of the highest quality. Hence, the pros perhaps do not have to take intensive care of those balls. However, when it comes to taking care of the training balls, it’s a different ball game. You need to make sure that you do something that will extend its life.

Cleaning, wiping and drying the balls after use will ensure that the grips stay in their prime condition and for long! Also, you need to store them sensibly when it is not used.

The Cleaning Principles

After a training session, your rugby ball needs a good clean. Since its an all-weather game, when the conditions are muddy and murky, the ball needs cleaning more badly. Wash it off thoroughly to get rid of the dirt and mud, and then wipe it off with a piece of rag and store it in an open place. Here are the steps you need to take:

  • After the match or the training session, wipe the ball with a wet cloth or wash it thoroughly in running water
  • You can also use a little bit of detergent or soap
  • Wipe the ball once more with the wet piece of rag or wash it thoroughly
  • Pat it thoroughly using a dry, clean towel and leave it for a ‘warm dry’, in a well-ventilated place.
  • Once it has dried completely, store it properly in a place that is designed to be used for storing rugby balls. Using ventilated side panels is the best option.

The Issue of Temperature

After you buy a training rugby ball, you need to consider the temperature factor. Do not keep it exposed to elements in chill winters or harsh summers. Store it in a well-ventilated space away from chill or sunlight.

Check its air pressure regularly. High-quality balls are designed to release air pressure slowly. Hence, you need to re-inflate the ball regularly to keep it in top shape.
