Rugby’s Factsheet

Union Live never disappoints. They say that necessity is the mother of invention. If that is true, then union Live is the necessity of knowledge. The app has a continuity of interesting thoughts, reviews, interviews, opinion pieces and live updates. When we are all sick of politics and all other news becomes increasingly insignificant, you can always rely on Union Live’ especially for the early morning coffee or just when you are bored at home. The app lets you live and breath rugby so for rugby nuts like me, you can’t leave it alone for long! Peter

Good content, poor advertising & technology

The one NRL advert is completely overdone, hearing the same advert over and over again is painful, further, I am on an iPhone, the app/videos often fails after the advert, so you have to restart the app and watch the NRL advert 2-5 times before actually seeing the video, this is very painful, I often give up before actually get to see the video.

Hi Bob, thanks for writing in about this. It sounds like there are a couple of different issues happening here. Would you mind emailing through to so that our team can ask the relevant questions for each issue and investigate to get to the bottom of them?

Couldn’t recommend any higher.

Fantastic app with everything the rugby supporter needs, one feature I didn’t expect is the localised game times, which is amazing considering the differing time zones each of the super rugby and international tests are played in.
Definitely my go to rugby app.
Couldn’t recommend any higher.
