About this object

This is one of the balls used in the 2003 World Cup final. The signature is that of the referee Andre Watson. The England team were victors in the final match versus Australia, in Sydney, winning 20-17. Down to the remaining minutes in the match Jonny Wilkinson was the hero by completing a drop that secured the win for England, a feat still remembered today.
