Prior to the start of the match, it's important a scorer or match manager has been appointed.

1. Selecting a Match
Step 1: Select 'Matches' from the menu
Step 2: Select the Match you would like to manage. For convenience, upcoming matches will be ordered first.
Note: To manage a match the status will need to be set to 'Pre-Game'. If the match status is set to 'Final' or 'Disputed' the match will be locked and can only be updated by the League Administrator.
2. Starting a Match
Step 1: Prior to starting a match it's important to confirm the correct match is selected by viewing the round number and date/time of the match. The connectivity icon will indicate whether your device is:
- Green (Synced): Connected and all match events are updated in the admin.
- Red (Offline): Not Connected, however, all match events when the connection is lost will still be saved locally and updated in the admin once connectivity is regained, meaning you can continue scoring even when you’re offline.
Step 2: Select Period 1 to start managing a match. Depending on the competition type the number of periods may differ. If the competition age group utilisers the Dummy Half (DH) and First Receiver (FR) vests you be given the option to record the players who have worn the vest each period. This is designed to help Coaches and Team Managers track and manage the vest rotation between players. This can be added either at the start of the period or by selecting the relevant period during the match.
3. Scoring a Match
Step 1: Once you have started the period you will be able to add scoring events. Select the 'Scoring' Tab.
Step 2: To add a scoring event, select the + icon next to the event that occurred, select the player from the list available, and enter the time of the event. Once submitted, the score will update according to the event selected.
Note: If you're unable to locate the player from the list available we recommend checking the team list to ensure they have been assigned. An option is also available in the player list to add an Unknown scorer.
Step 3: If an error is made it can be amended from the 'Feed' tab, which captures a list of all match events in chronological order.
4. Managing the Interchange
Step 1: Select the Interchange Tab
Step 2: To add an interchange event, select the + icon next to the event that occurred, select the player leaving the field, select the player entering the field, enter the time and select Submit to save the event. Note: In some events such as a Sin Bin you won't be required to select a player to enter the field.
Step 3: If an error is made it can be amended from the 'Feed' tab, which captures the list of match events in chronological order.
5. Match Activity Feed
Step 1: Select the Feed Tab
Step 2: If required any amendments can be made via the event feed by selecting the - icon next to the event you would like to remove. Once selected, you will be required to confirm the change.
Note: All Match events (both scoring and interchange) will be captured in the feed and if permitted will be displayed in the Match Centres along with results on playrugbyleague.com and the MyLeague App.
6. Confirming the Result
Step 1: Once the game has concluded and all match events have been added you will need to set the match as final by selecting the 'Final' tab.
Step 2: Confirm the result. If required you can modify the scores prior to confirming the result.
Note: If required, the match can be disputed if the result can't be confirmed at the ground. A dispute can be submitted via the Match List by sliding the Match Card to the left, selecting the Dispute button and entering a dispute reason. A dispute option is also available on the Match Management screen by selecting the menu list in the top right-hand corner.
