Electronic Match Cards

For 2018-19 the RFU are extending electronic match cards (EMC) to level 8 in the men’s game. The level of detail required will mirror that of level 5 and 6 in the mens game i.e. team line-ups and confirmation of result. The following link will take you to the EMC section of the England Rugby website. Here you will find a range of support material for the desktop and mobile versions of EMC, including:

- Written step by step ‘how-to’ guides

- Video guides (if you view them on full screen they may appear slightly blurry. We are working to fix this ASAP, but for now it is advisable to view in the screen size that opens when you click on the link)

- Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ’s)

- ‘How to get help’ document We have set up dummy fixtures on Desktop version of EMC for you to run through in preparation for the season.

Once logged into GMS click on the ‘Match Card’ tab to access EMC. To locate the dummy fixtures please follow these instructions:

1. Search for ‘EMC Inter Division Leagues’ in the ‘Competition’ drop down box.

2. Then click on the ‘Group’ drop down box and select your region. This will then present fixtures for your region (Southwest) **If you would like a comparable example on the Mobile version of EMC, login to mobile EMC through the link above and choose your first XV team. Select the appropriate fixture to complete. Note - this may appear in the ‘past’ tab if the dummy fixture was scheduled for a date in the past. You will be able to complete the EMC for the dummy games until the 28th August at which time we will delete the data ready for the start of the league season.

To access EMC you must have the correct permissions on GMS. It is your club's responsibility to ensure the appropriate people have the correct permissions to access EMC.

Two people within a club can do this:

1. Honorary Secretary

2. Data Officer

A final note to mention is for the curious amongst you who may have searched for ‘EMC’ on Google you will find YouTube videos that were posted last year. They will still provide useful tips as a guide but they do not present the most up to date version of EMC, again, please be aware of this.
