Online Rugby ScoreBoard
Rugby union scoreboards are among the most simple because they usually contain very little information. Just the score counter and the timer. The International World Rugby Federation governs and sets the rules of the game.
More detailed score counters display the tries, penalties, field goals, conversions and total points of each team separately.
Use this online scoreboard with a projector or with a shared big screen to display the score. Share the results with a web link at the end of the game.
Basic rugby union rules
A rugby match has two periods of 40 minutes and the referee stops the clock for interruptions. There's a 10-minute break between the two halves, after which the teams change ends. Extra time is applied only if it's a knockout competition.
There are many ways to score points:
- A conversion - 2 points are awarded for a successful kick through the goalposts after a try
- A goal kick - 2 points for a penalty kick or drop goal through the posts
- A try - 5 points are added for touching the ball down in your opponent's goal area.
Open the settings to adjust the style of the scoreboard.

Images – add an image background and display the logos of the two opposing teams specifying the URL of the images. You can't upload your image files to our server so I recommend using a thrid party file sharing service such as PostImages.org or ibb.co. The recommended file format is png with transparent background.

Open the settings to reorganize the order of the rows and hover the section you'd like to move up. Click the top arrows that show up on the right of a panel while hovering it. This way you can move the clock to the top and the score to the bottom.
Toggle edit mode with the pencil icon in the menu. A cursor starts blinking in the first score counter when the edit mode is activated. Use your keyboard to set the values easily. Make sure to enter number values in the counters, otherwise they will be set to zero.
The keyboard shortcuts are disabled when the edit mode is turned on.
Toggle full screen mode to hide the browser frame. You can also do this pressing the F11 key in most web browsers. You might need to adjust the zoom and top margin in the settings.
