    Is it an identified problem that needs fixing? Or should WR allocate its finite resources to the shower thoughts that grace various online discussion boards?

    It seems to have encouraged enough discussion to warrant a look. And if it needs fixing, the fix is very easy to implement.

    Discussion is cheap and easy Are the women who play complaining? Are their coaches?

    I have no idea. What I do know is that improvement isn't necessarily driven out of complaints.

    I was TJ at a match for England deaf womens 7 team against my old club St Neots (Charity match) in 2012 I think, where they used a size 4.5 ball. https://www.sportsballshop.co.uk/aca...ugby-Ball.html They are still available. At the time I was told that this was the size that the womens game was going to use. I believe that they abandoned it due to cost (I.E. clubs would have to have an extra set of balls and because of low vouklmes they would be much more expensive. I looked for SIze 4.5 a couple of years ago when I started coaching girls sevens in Aus again and they were very expensive then. looks like Gilbert have dropped the price quite a lot since then so maybe a trial would be possible (even if only in training games so that people could get an actual feel for the balls).

    they describe them as training balls so I wonder how robust they are.

    Gilbert training balls usually last as long as the match balls, difference is mainly in the balance as the match balls have the valve in a seam which is more costly to produce than one in a panel where the training balls have them, hence the major difference in cost between them.
