A high graphic rugby training ball that is widely used with schools and amateur rugby teams – the Sabre is a long standing name in Mitre’s rugby range. Available in size 5, 4 and 3, the Sabre Rugby Ball is highly recommended for use on grass in a training environment.
Playing in low light or white out conditions? Why not try the Sabre Fluo, a hi-visibility green version of one of Mitre’s widely used training rugby balls.
The tried and tested four panel construction is manufactured to the highest and tightest specification to deliver optimum power, accuracy, consistency and control. Manufactured using a deep pimple emboss for optimum grip during play. The Sabre Training Rugby ball uses a high air retention bladder to ensure that it doesn’t require inflation before every use, ideal for people short on time.
To avoid damaging your Mitre Rugby ball, care should be taken when inserting the inflation needle into the ball when using your Mitre pump, particularly on first inflation (remember your Mitre ball will be shipped deflated). We recommend you use Mitre Glycerine to lubricate the inflation needle, this will allow it to be inserted smoothly and carefully. Once inserted, inflate your ball to the desired pressure; there is a recommended pressure printed by the valve and the maximum pressure should not be exceeded. The amount of pressure inside the ball will significantly affect performance and could affect ball lifespan. To check ball pressure we recommend you use a Mitre Pressure Gauge, this will help set the ball pressure before use and ensure you get the most from your Rugby ball. For match play, we recommend you inflate the ball to the maximum recommended pressure; for training, a pressure at the lower end of the recommended tolerance is advised.
After care – if you use your ball in wet/muddy conditions, we recommend that you clean off any excessive dirt with a damp cloth (do not clean in a bath or shower), before allowing to dry naturally in an airy place and away from the cold (use a Mitre Mesh Ball Sack to store where possible). Balls should not be force dried with heat as this may damage the ball.
