The International Rugby Board has launched an innovative application for universal download, providing another digital accessibility dimension for the Laws of the Game.
The first ever IRB app, which sits alongside the official IRB Laws website is now available at www.irblaws.com and also via the App Store. It will be an invaluable tool for all those who need regular and quick access to the Game's Laws when on the move.
Developed by Ireland-based firm MobaNode, the app will enable users to consult Laws and watch video examples and animations to build a greater understanding of Law application. There are over 80 embedded videos, with more than 200 videos available via internet links as well as 49 referee signals detailed in words, pictures and videos.
“This application represents another significant step forward in the delivery of our key training and education tools,” said IRB Training and Medical Manager Mark Harrington.
“There are many benefits of the application and the Laws of the Game will now be at everyone's fingertips, wherever they are in the world, and can be downloaded for free.”
The invaluable tool for the global Rugby family has been produced in English and can be downloaded from www.irblaws.com or via the App Store, and will be available in French and Spanish shortly.
It also contains links to the portfolio of interactive IRB websites designed to educate and inform the global Rugby family, including www.irbrugbyready.com, www.irbcoaching.com, www.keeprugbyclean.com and www.irbplayerwelfare.com.
The application includes information on Laws 1-22 of the IRB Laws of the Game, plus Seven-a-side and Under 19 variations and contains a bookmarking feature allowing any specific clause to be marked for quick future reference.
