Welcome to IRB Rugby Ready

Welcome to IRB Rugby Ready - devised by the International Rugby Board. The IRB Rugby Ready programme is intended to raise awareness of good practice and help stakeholders manage the inherent risks of a contact sport by putting appropriate safeguards in place.

The Rugby Ready web site is a powerful online resource that you can register to use for free. You can use the site to build, refresh and test your knowledge of the physical aspects of the Game.

The self-assessment programme comprises 18 good-practice modules covering:

  • Match preparation and physical conditioning
  • Correct technique
  • Injury prevention and management.

After completing the online IRB Rugby Ready exam, you can download your personalised awareness certificate.

Registration is free and takes only a few minutes.
