Referee Development System

  • Referee Development System 167

RDS is a complete video analysis programme for rugby referees of all levels and was originally developed for use exclusively by the NZRU.

Referees can watch and code video footage of games from anywhere then collaborate with peers and coaches to improve their decisions on the field. Game footage statistics can be automatically pulled into RDS and videos clipped and ready for the referee to analyse.

RDS can be used out of the box and has the flexibility to be customised to meet your needs.
