Devious subscription money grab


After all the years I have spent using this app, and the great access to rugby it has given me, it is downright shameful that UR now ask for a 10 euro subscription to access all areas of the app. I paid for premium last year, and I felt it was worth paying as I used the app often. Clearly, ad revenue and offering a premium version is now not enough for Brian O'dricsoll and the lads. You mean to say I paid 4.50 for a full version of the app that has now been stripped in order to create more money. I'm afraid what part of the app they will try and monetise next? Maybe a 50c payment every time you load it? Sad. Ridiculous. Embarrassing.
Edit to the developer’s response;
I appreciate that you have taken the time to attempt to alleviate my concerns, however I don't think you understood by any means the point I was trying to make. Ive seen your responses to the other reviewers here for one, and you fail to mention the fact that both challenge cup and champions cup games have also been put behind this subscription wall. Meanwhile, the point I’m making is that you’ve introduced this new subscription ‘service’ without providing anything new. You’ve taken something that was previously free of charge and tried to make people pay for it, without providing a new product or improving your current one. (The most annoying thing, I might add, is the blocking of the team lineups section. I have no interest in these ‘stats’)

Developer Response

We are sorry to hear you feel this way.

I think maybe some clarification might help that you purchased the Ultimate Rugby PRO app which is pop up ad free but the Ultimate Rugby + subscription is a new addition to both apps

We are constantly striving to increase and widen our rugby coverage. This expansion into new tournaments with better stats and faster coverage has led to these changes. With over 10 000 players and 250 pro teams on the app we are always improving our offering All the best

Ad free isn’t ad free!


Paid for the ad free pro app but you now get video ads and their own in-house subscription ads. These subscription ads can block you from seeing certain games’ home pages so you can’t find out what tv channel the game is on etc. Very very frustrating! It is now very slow indeed on the latest iOS updates, very laggy. Such a shame indeed! PS, guys you need to do an overhaul of your UX approach and tidy up the UI Design a bit. Starting to feel pretty dated. Exploring a better direction in these areas would help boost your new subscription based model with user confidence.

Hi Petey,

The Ultimate Rugby PRO app is only pop up ad free, you will still see in stream video ads & ads for Ultimate Rugby + unless you decide to subscribe.

We are constantly trying to improve the performance and will look into to try improve any lagging or loading speed issues you're experiencing. Also we appreciate the feedback on the UI/UX, we will look into it for review in due course.

Once again thanks for your feedback, enjoy the rugby!

Don’t by premium


Had been very happy with the app and then they updated it to have a lot of interesting stats on players and tournaments which you could access by buying premium. Fair enough. I paid for premium but then still couldn’t access a lot of the information. Worse then, is that ultimate rugby know this and have done nothing about it, even after contacting me. They asked me to do a couple of things which didn’t do anything and it seems because I can’t fix their issue myself they’ve kept my money and stopped trying to help. So can’t say I’m happy with the app at all anymore
