    Hey guys.

    I left my footies in Australia as a matter of space. However I have decided I need to get one, particularly after meeting another Footy fan and we want to go kick the ball around in subzero degree temperatures because...well because we can.

    However I am having trouble finding more than just fan balls. I used to have a great training steeden that had the correct weight and shape, where as the fan balls are far too light and not quite right.

    Just wondering if anyone knows of a website in Europe or an Australian website that ships decent training or match style steedens?

    I did find a whole lot of Guilbert balls, but they strike me as much more Union in style and as snobby as it sound, I want the correct NRL weight for my way too intense kick arounds in Vondelpark.

    Although these are size 5....I dunno if that is too small or not.

    Maybe these guys are friendly enough to source you one?


    Use a house brick like I do.


    edit: Getting mine sent over with a whole lot of other gear. SHould be here in about a week! (that doesn't help you at all.) I'm a hermit though, so no one to kick it around with.

    Folks are coming over in June, May get them to deflate a good one and bring it. However I don't trust them to buy a decent one, they will just get a supporters ball and not realise about the weight. May need to send a friend down to purchase one and drop it off at my folks place

    UK shop charges 33 pound for postage of a ball that I'm not sure I wil like.

    All good Mikey flies back to australia for a month over Xmas and comes back early in the new year, he is going to go find me a decent one
