Ever wished you could practise your passing technique without the help of a friend?
Up until now it has been virtually impossible to do so due to the unpredictable bounce of a rugby ball, but an innovative invention has changed all that.
According to its creators, the Partner Ball allows users to “perfect their spin pass, improve accuracy and efficiency from both hands, and develop better catching and reactions”.
It is essentially a standard rugby ball with one end flattened, which allows it to rebound off surfaces as if it was a soccer ball. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor use, you can use it to hit targets from all kinds of distances, which should make hitting a man on the field much easier. And for those who enjoy both rugby codes, it’s also a very handy tool for perfecting your lineout throw.
We’ve teamed up with the company to give away five Partner Balls (worth £20 each) to Total Rugby League readers. All you have to do to enter the giveaway is subscribe to our free Rugby League newsletter by clicking here. Anyone who is already signed up will be automatically considered.
