Would you consider yourself a die-hard fan of Rugby? Or perhaps you’re among the more casual viewing audience? Maybe somewhere in-between? Regardless of the degree of your fondness towards the sport, the world of technology has opened up new channels of Rugby information-sharing, streaming, and even gaming.

The world of smartphones is one of the most salient mediums through which this happens. From simple trivia games to Rugby fantasy league help and apps that are pocket-books of Rugby law, the sport has invaded the app stores of both Apple and Android. Here’s a handful of Rugby apps that, we believe, every fan should own.

Flick Kick Rugby Kickoff

A free app that’s about as simple as it is entertaining, Flick Kick Rugby Kickoff is a great way to kill some time, start a contest, or simply strengthen your hand-eye co-ordination skills (the mobile bingo apps that you can play on this site are another good way to work on your reactions). The game’s mechanics are straightforward: after choosing your game mode, you use your finger of choice to flick-kick the ball in-between the uprights. It’s a great way to create your own fantastic moments of glory and failure.

Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge

This is probably one of the most dynamic and visually-appealing Rugby apps on the market right now. The Jonah Lomu Rugby Challenge app is a mobile variant of its original console games. You can compete in all sorts of Rugby competitions and work your way up to become a Rugby legend, all drama, aggression, struggle, and glory included. Although it’s not free, its price tag carries an insane amount of worth, and you’d be very hard-pressed to find another app like it on the market.

IRB Laws of Rugby

This app is less for the seekers of virtual Rugby thrill and more for the technical aficionados and lovers of the game. Basically, it’s an app that tells you all the ins and outs of how the game of Rugby is played. It provides an easy-to-understand (sometimes) and complete breakdown of all the rules and technicalities of the game. Use this one to prove your buddies wrong whenever heated arguments about penalties and terrible referees ensue.

RFU iPhone App

Finally, we have an app that keeps you up-to-date with the latest and greatest of English Rugby news. The RFU iPhone app allows you to view English Rugby matches in live-stream, as well as receive live news, match statistics, and team line-ups. The app provides you with links to buy tickets online as well as navigation around the bars and pubs that surround the Twickenham Stadium area. It’s a prime way of staying in-touch with English Rugby and your favourite teams.

  • Anything available that would help the refs.

    Jeepers and how about an app for the third umpire in test cricket, who has every bit of technology available to him but still cant pick up a white mark on a dark grey / black background. That guy needs an app with sound, and a new job.

  • Jonah Lomu rugby was great. 1 and 2. Maybe they can make nr 3 and donate proceeds to his family or rugby scholarships in his name.

  • I’ve stumbled upon a very fun and addictive app/game. It’s called ‘Rugby Manager’.
