Fun facts about rugby balls

The first rugby balls

DID YOU KNOW?
The first rugby balls were made in the second half of the 19th century by a man named Richard Lindon out of pig’s bladders covered in leather panels.

However the hand pump and valve had yet to be invented and Lindon wife had to blow up the balls by mouth. Eventually Mrs Lindon fell ill as a result of a diseased bladder, and passed away.
