The Rhino ball had been kicked into touch and replaced by Steeden.

That is good news even if it just means it will stop people moaning about it.

Please excuse my ignorance on this, but is this a big deal? What was wrong with the Rhino ball?

The Rhino balls design and material meant that it would retain water and moisture on the surface far more than the Steeden ball, resulting in knock-on-athon's during really humid weather games, or downpours.

No excuse for the players now, they put the blame on the ball - so 90% completion rates all round this season

I remember the cup game away at Catalans in 2013 when we won against the odds (23-14 I think) and that game was awful for unforced errors. At the time the ball was called out then. Have they been using the same type of ball since?

(I know, it'll be the same for both sides.)
