Great App - but a couple of tweaks needed

Easy to use and well laid out. Works off network as a reference. Only things extra I’d ask for are:
1) allow to swipe left/right to get to the next law, and/or have a next/previous link at the bottom of each law.
2) have option to download the video clips to a local cache to enable offline review.

A possible extra section which may be good to add would be to add the law application guidelines (eg the decision making framework for high tackles) and the recent clarifications of law (both these sections are on the IRB site)

Great app explains everything.

I had so many questions when I started playing. This is a great app for beginning and seasoned players.

Referee signals

It would be nice if on the Referee Signals tab on the secondary signals if they would include if the listed offense would be a PK, FK, or scrum etc. just so we could easily relate the two. Not sure if that is possible with each signal or not.
