Gloves

Discussion in 'General Rugby Union' started by SaintsFan_Webby, Sep 28, 2004.

  1. What does everyone think of rugby mits?

    I've started experimenting this season by wearing a pair of Kooga ones, and they have led me to this conclusion:
    If you can catch then they will help improve your basic grip, however if you can't catch in the first place then they won't help you at all.

    What does anyone else think? Are they worth the effort?

  3. I wear them its just like SaintsFan_Webby said if you can catch they help you a little bit, they also help well me anyway grab the ball better (when its on the ground) but mainly just have them to look good and keep my hands warm on a cold day

    For me,their effect is merely placebo..like my good old they'll-never-get-rid-of-my-tackles rabbit foot [​IMG]
     
  5. Cold day -- I can understand.

    But look good? Are you the only female forum member? [​IMG]
     
  6. I want to know whether they help if the ball is wet. That's really annoying.
     
  7. Hey [​IMG] i kind of shot myself in the foot with that comment [​IMG]
     
  8. Well tell me this how good are you at catching wet ball answer me this and i will tell you
     
  9. They do look good though. I scored the other day and strutted my stuff back along the touchline with loads of girls I knew watching [​IMG]

    That's the proper wingers' mentality [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  10. Well. I can catch a wet ball. Just cause it's wet it'll be a little bit harder.
     
  11. If you have good hands then they should help you in the wet, otherwise you might as well not bother.
     
  12. Yeah that might work for you but im an openside flanker [​IMG]
     
  13. Not quite the same dazzling good looks then [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  14. Nah i have to put up with all the rough stuff and do all the hard work and you glitzy wingers get all the credit [​IMG]
     
  15. Ah well, someone has to score the tries. Its all part of the game [​IMG] [​IMG]
     
  16. You wouldnt be scoring them if it wasnt for us forwards [​IMG] how much did your gloves cost?
     
  17. I got them really cheap, found them in a sale for £4.50
     
  18. My gloves are Rugbytech and they cost me $30 i first brought a pair of Canterbury ones that cost $40 i took them to training and the grip started to come off so i took them back and got my Rugbytech gloves and they are really good quality
     
  19. I only got them because they were cheap, I wouldn't have bothered otherwise.
     
  20. I was trying to be flash because only a couple of people had them at my school, they were worth it though IMO
     
  21. Well they've kept my hands warm so far this year if nothing else. And an interception pass I took while playing the other day did stick very well.
