Match Day App and Rugby Xplorer Admin

Click Here for Video Tutorial  2nd video on this webpage, and Match Day info starts at 5mins,46second mark.

2. Ensure your Coaches, Managers, and Volunteers are registered on Xplorer App
3. Club Admin to assign User Role for Teenage/Senior Team Admins to control Match Day App (eg. 'John Smith', assigned as Team Admin for Under 13 Teenagers)
4. Club Admin goes into Player Management Tab in Rugby Xplorer Admin - assigns all 12 and 13 year olds REGISTERED ALREADY into team, click on every player 12 and 13 years old, and 'add to team' please 'ok', then 'save' down the bottom of the screen.
5.  John Smith as eg. U13 Team Admin then downloads the Rugby Match Day App
6.  Before the game, well ahead of time, John records the jersey numbers and positions of his under 13 team in Match Day App.  Ensures there is adequate battery charge on his smartphone for the match.
7. John confirms with the opposing Team Manager/Admin if he will record for his team or both teams
8.  John in 2019 is still completing the Team Book, including Jersey Numbers, player signatures, all points, signed and verified by the Referee at Full Time.
9. John presses the PLAY button to commence the Match on Match Day App.  Ensure you use a smartphone, as iPad or Surface Pro will not have full functionality.
10. John records all points: field goals, penalty goals, tries, and conversion goals in Match Day App.  Also John will record any Yellow, Red, or Blue (Concussion  Cards) issued in the match.
11. John does not have to pause for halftime.  Best practice would be for John to approach the opposing team admin entering into Match Day App @ Halftime to verify the score and results so far.
12. John does not have to record rolling substitutions from his team throughout the Match.
13. John enters the second half stats.
14.   At the conclusion of the Match, John approaches the opposing team manager, verifies the score is 30 points to 8.  1 Yellow card for John's Team.  Then both Team's Admins on Match Day, approach the Referee for:
  • Verification of Team Book, and signed by Referee
  • Verification of the Match Result and all statistics, including Yellow/Red/Blue Cards on Match Day App. 
ONLY AT THIS POINT, can John press the STOP BUTTON.  Once both teams have pressed stop, the result will become 'live'.
