ShadowBall: Now you can train solo

It's rare that we promote a product on Planet Rugby, but we think we've found the most innovate tool to hit the market since the kicking tee replaced the bucket of sand.

Introducing ShadowBall, the half-a-rugby ball that is redefining rugby skills training in the 21st century.

At last! A dedicated player can now train without the need for someone to pass the ball back. With its flattened edge, the ShadowBall is engineered to rebound and spin back when the flat edge is passed or thrown against a wall.

ShadowBall helps to develop essential throwing passing and receiving skills and techniques for all field positions - especially scum-halves and hookers.

The high quality, hand stitched training aid has exactly the same size and weight specifications as an official size 5 IRB match ball, meaning the ShadowBall enables players of all ages and levels to perfect passing, catching and throwing skills and techniques - left and right handed - in their own time, unsupervised, at their own performance pace, and independently of a training partner .

The ShadowBall Handbook (free with every purchase) is a result of a detailed study performed by the Stellenbosch University Centre for Human Performance Sciences, working with the ShadowBall Sports Science Team.

"Shadow Ball will revolutionise torpedo pass training in South Africa and most probably in the world" - Marinus Van Der Wat, Blue Bulls Youth Academy Coach.
