This official 2015 Gilbert Rugby World Cup supporter ball was hand signed by Nigel Owens MBE in Pontyberem, South Wales on the 1st April 2021.
Owens was on the 12-man referee panel for the 2015 Rugby World Cup where he was appointed to three pool stage matches, including the France v Ireland clash at the Principality Stadium, which was the first time Owens refereed an international match at the home of Welsh rugby. Owens refereed two more World Cup tests, one of which was the historic 2015 Rugby World Cup Final between New Zealand and Australia. He became only the second Welshman to referee a Rugby World Cup Final, after Derek Bevan MBE took charge of the Rugby World Cup Final in 1991.
Owens went on to win the World Rugby Referee Award at the 2015 World Rugby Awards.
