Talented Madeline Hunter, six, was crowned the winner of a competition at her school to design a rugby ball.
Her design has now been printed onto 60 balls which the youngsters can keep.
Dunchurch Infant School headteacher Ian Dewes said: “After finding out how rugby balls have been traditionally made, it was exciting for them to design their own and see one design made into 60 real balls.
Hopefully this will inspire them to keep playing.”
