Technical Zone Programme

This module provides an introduction to the working of the Technical Zone – an area just as important to an effective game of elite rugby, as the playing enclosure itself.

As an official in the Technical Zone, it is your role to understand, and manage, all aspects related to replacements in accordance with World Rugby regulations and tournament terms of participation. By doing so, you will help ensure the match is completed within the Laws of the Game.

In this module you will learn about:

  • Roles and responsibilities of different people in this area
  • The basic functions within those roles
  • The Laws of the game as they relate to this area
  • The administration elements required of the role
  • Skills required to successfully perform the roles.

You will be able to complete some test questions to check your knowledge.
