Sports equipment manufacturer Gilbert is celebrating its seventh consecutive tournament as the Official Match Ball Provider of the Rugby World Cup with the launch of a short film entitled Rugby Memories.

The clip looks back at the Rugby World Cup 1995 in South Africa, where Nelson Mandela presented the trophy to winning Springboks captain Francois Pienaar.

The piece is part of a wider campaign from Gilbert Rugby celebrating their seventh World Cup, which will feature high profile players, international unions, grass roots partners and fans from around the world sharing their own rugby memories.

Andy Challis, Global Brand Manager from Gilbert said: “Wherever you play or support the game, the passion it evokes and the memories it creates are hard to forget. We want to celebrate fans of Rugby from around the world and want to use #RugbyMemories as a vehicle for that.”
