Championship Rugby


Championship Rugby

I am an avid rugby fan, and I love “Between the Posts” and “Rugby World”.

However, as a passionate club rugby supporter, the prospect of playing an entire season of over 130 matches using “Between the Posts”, “Line Out”, or even “Rugby World” would take around 25 hours more than I had to spare.

What I wanted was something that would give me the “Teletext” feeling of watching the scores change over the afternoon, and seeing the league table at the end of the day. I wanted to know how many tries teams had scored, and if anyone had been suspended or injured prior to the following weeks game. And I wanted an entire week playable in around 10 minutes.

Enter “Championship Rugby” – which enables you to play an entire rugby tournament in only a few hours.

Individual players are not identified, but teams have dynamic Attack and Defence ratings which fluctuate over the season depending on form, injuries, suspensions or even the resignation of the team coach.

These ratings, plus home advantage and weather, determine the match ratings for the teams each week. Matches are then played out with two dice rolls per team per half, making it easy to generate half time scores for the full week’s fixture list before progressing to the second half of each match, if you wish.

“Championship Rugby” generates a statistically accurate campaign, whilst still maintaining that unpredictable aspect of sport that can keep a grown man glued to a list of fixtures and scores on a TV or computer screen for twenty minutes, just praying for the magic “Result” to come up next to the current score of “22-20 Latest” … and that feeling of despair when instead it flicks to “22-23 Result”!
