The aim of this study was to determine successful components of lineout performance and provide specific athlete friendly feedback to UWIC RFC. Previous analysis of Rugby Union has rarely focussed on the specific components of lineout performance, so new performance indicators were produced and developed with input from a former international coach to analyse the specific components of UWIC RFC 1st XV’s attacking lineouts. Each lineout was divided into three phases: Preparation, Process and Performance. 33 pre-recorded games from the 2009-2010 and 2010-2011 seasons provided 368 attacking lineouts that could be used for computer analysis through the SportsCode software. Intra-operator reliability procedures were conducted on the system created, with results from Kappa and Weighted Kappa statistics showing very good strengths of agreement. The results produced were presented in an athlete friendly format, based on suggestions and requests from UWIC RFC coaches, and mainly focussed on the 2010-2011 season lineouts. Findings from the selected sample showed good lift and jump qualities as components that most often led to success. The presentation of athlete friendly results also produced a paper that instantly provided informed feedback to the sample team.
