English Rugby fans now have an app to call their own, with the release of the O2 Matchday app for BlackBerry 10. Released by O2 -- the official Sponsors of the England Rugby team -- the app contains all the news and information you could want about the national team. Right now of course, we're in the midst of the Six Nations tournament, so beyond just England fixture information, you can also read up on how the other nations are faring. Equally the full table is also included at the moment, which currently makes for good reading for all England Rugby fans!
The current, full squad list is on board, as are a bunch of O2 included features such as a Priority moments section more geared at O2 customers, along with links to some O2 produced videos dedicated to the team. One really nice feature though is the Ref Link. While watching a game -- such as todays crucial tie with Italy -- it provides a direct link to the match referee on the pitch, so you get to hear everything that's going on. It only works on England home games it seems, and it won't work if you're actually at Twickenham Stadium, though that's more likely down to the sale of dedicated radio units there rather than any kind of licensing issues.
All in all it's a decent resource for England Rugby fans. It isn't a native BlackBerry 10 app though, and scrolling between menus is sometimes a little rough. But Ref Link alone might be reason enough to give it a try, I know I'll have it tuned in this afternoon!
