Rugby Link, developed by InteractSport, is Australian Rugby Unions online Player Registration & Competition Management System. Implemented in 2015, it is available free of charge to all Clubs and Members Australia wide.

Rugby Link offers a wide range of features, including online participant registration and payment, full competition management functionality, player statistics and bulk communication tools, such as email and SMS options.

Part-payments and more flexible payment options for registrations have just been released into Rugby Link (Thursday 9 March). Please see the Resource Library for '4. Part-Payments Registration Form' self-help guide to assist Club administrators set this up. Plus the 'Participant Registration Process (Part Payments)' to assist individual players to register and pay through Rugby Link. 


As part of the wider Canopi - ARU Learning Centre accreditation project, whereby the accreditation structure is being updated to reflect the ARU accreditation workflow, all accreditation information will be deleted from Rugby Link today.

Individual participants and ARU Learning Centre administrators will be able to continue to check accreditations via the Learning Centre portal.

It will then be a two week process to ensure the accreditations flow correctly from the ARU Learning Centre through the ARU database and then into Rugby Link. Once this process is complete, Clubs and Associations will again be able to see the accreditations of their members in Rugby Link.

Please note, Smart Rugby accreditations expire every April 1st, so no coach or match official who was accredited last season will expire during this process for the purposes of appointing them, or having them coach.
