  • The system of recording results will be through PlayHQ at the end of the fixture. It is recommended that Team Managers, Coaches, Umpires and Sports Co-ordinators are familiar with using PlayHQ. The person populating the digital card will need to check with the Umpires and Officials that the score, penalty cards and any injuries are correct. Training will be provided prior to the season commencing.
