Ratings and Reviews
Teams can be added but not removed. Why?
Having the news tab as the default is fine if there is actually some news, but annoying when not. If you drill down on a particular result then hit the back button, it defaults to news rather than return (logically) to the results tab. Why?
The top line teams (already well serviced on many other platforms) have news stories up the wazoo, but I’d wager the Bullamakanka U9s would go a whole season without a writeup.
Developer Response ,
Thanks for your review. Couple of answers below.
Teams can be removed by un-select the team and make sure you save the changes at the bottom of the page. The news section is based on your club setting up their News Feed from their Facebook page - the club themselves can then publish their own news and service the community (Bullamakanka U9's in your example) - also we are looking in the future to expose news for players who have grown up through the club and are now at the elite level. When you go into a result it should not send you back to the news tab - I cant reproduce what you mention, if you can can you please send through to us at RugbyXplorer@Rugby.com.au so we can look into it further that would be great.
Not sure where to start or finish
I’m not sure who is doing your UX but I find it hard to believe this has been signed off by anyone that has been involved at a grassroots club level. I struggle to accept that we are expected to administer game results through this app with no alternative...we are forced to use it.
I can’t even see the team names of our 3 under 11’s teams because their name is cut off. So how about you get the basics right before releasing updates that mean nothing to the people who use the app for club rugby and can’t even find their team.
I am the registrar for a club of over 500 junior players and almost 100 junior volunteers.
I have encouraged them all to call your help line with their issues, but they call the club committee instead. The release of this half baked app by RugbyAU was disrespectful to the grassroots volunteers and its members.
Just put the effort into getting the simple stuff right.

Thanks for your review and I am sorry you are experiencing issues.
Administering game results should be done through the Rugby Match Day app rather than Rugby Xplorer (please let us know if I am getting the wrong end of the stick here).
In regards to the long team names there is an update coming shortly to deal with this issue. Our help line are always available if you should need to give them a call alternatively you can contact them on RugbyXplorer@Rugby.com.au.
Good-it seems simple once it works.
Bad-can’t get rid of some teams (Wallabies, 7s etc) set as default
Finding community teams, which is all I want to do, is hard and confusing especially requiring “save” once you already selected the club and team
Can’t add a competition and then filter by club or grade which you could on rugby link or see the full round for this week (only the team you “add”
Can’t see team lists easily
Can’t see highest point scorer/tryscorer etc or filter by club/grade/scoring type as previously could
For larger clubs you can’t find all grades if they aren’t all on page 1 and they are just randomly ordered ie I couldn’t find 3rd grade but could get under 10s and heaps of junior teams but there’s no order, seems random

Thanks for the feedback.
You can remove the favourite teams (Wallabies, 7s etc...) - go into teams un-check and save. When you add a team, the competition they play in is automatically added in the comps section so you can see the entire competition round. We will be looking to add in more stats information shortly inc. highest scorers etc... as well as reviewing all aspects of the user experience. Thank you very much for the feedback it is very valuable.
