The first rugby ball

The first rugby ball was made from pig’s bladders (a pig’s bladder is a body part that stores urine). It was unhealthy and smelly. People had to blow up pig’s bladders like balloons but now they use stems of a clay pipe.

Some of the people that made the rugby balls didn’t like the fact that rugby balls were made with pig’s bladder. The smell of urine made it hard for people to blow up the rugby balls. If I had to do that I would never do it again.

Now there are new rugby balls made with synthetic materials which are better and soft. More and more people like rugby balls now like me, because I like them when they are made out of rubber.
