Performance analysis is becoming an ever increasing part of sport, whether it’s in a coaching environment or through the media. Therefore, there is a demand for new systems and software to be developed for the purpose of analysis. Rugby union is one of the many sports in which performance analysis is becoming a key part of a teams match preparation and there is a need for new analysis software specific to rugby union. A piece of software called Dynamic Analysis Programme System (DAPS) has just been developed and is one specific to rugby union. Like with any new software before DAPS can be used widely it needs to be tested in a practical environment. The aims of this study were to test the reliability and usability of the DAPS software. Percentage error and a weighted kappa statistic were carried out to test the reliability of the software. The study found that the system had an acceptable level of reliability on both an inter operator and intra operator level. The usability of the system also proved to be good and this was represented by the reliability scores. However, there were also a number of areas where the system could be improved and developed. These changes need to be made if the system is going to develop and be successful in the rugby market.
