Match Observation Programme

The Match Observation Programme aims to develop your analytical skills by looking at Rugby in a different way. Topics covered include the Game and its principles, the teams and players, and the role of the match officials.

The sections on the left will take you through these aspects of the Game with video examples to illustrate the topics covered.

Then, you'll watch or download a 40-minute half of Rugby - the first half of the match from which all the clips in this programme are taken - to do some analysis of your own.

When you've done your analysis, there is a multiple-choice exam to complete, which can be accessed by clicking on the 'EXAM' button in the panel on the left. Upon successful completion, you will be able to download an awareness certificate.
