Criteria guideline[edit]

See also: Wikipedia:Importance and Wikipedia:Criteria for inclusion of biographies.

WikiProject Rugby union participants have adopted the following guidelines for notability of a rugby union person for an article in Wikipedia:

  • Has appeared in at least one test match, sevens competition or domestic rugby competition, as player, umpire, coach or administrator
  • Has appeared in at least one first class rugby union match

Please note that the failure to meet these criteria does not mean an article must be deleted; conversely, the meeting of any of these criteria does not mean that an article must be kept.

For more information see WikiProject Rugby union's criteria for article inclusion.

Article style[edit]

Naming Conventions

Rugby union shall be written in lower case, such as rugby union, except when starting a sentence (such as in this one).

Also see Wikipedia naming conventions, for naming articles.

Summarise and link

Particularly when writing history of rugby union, be careful not to duplicate information. A good way to deal with duplicate information is to have one major article on that subject, and wherever else it is mentioned, summarise and link to it. Do so in the following manner:

  1. Place the link under the heading of the section you are writing and before any text.
  2. Use {{main}}, like this {{main|Article name here}}. It will appear like this:
    Main article: Article name here
  3. If necessary or relevant, also link to a specific section in the article


When adding information or statistics, be sure to add a reference. Add the reference after the relevant sentence; using Wikipedia as an example:

<ref name=wiki1>{{cite web | | title=Main page of Wikipedia | url=| accessdate=2006-04-01}}</ref>

For more info on different citation styles (eg for websites, books, news, etc) see WP:CITET.

Then, put a references section at the bottom of the page, above the external links:

==References== <div style="font-size: 90%"> <references /> </div>

If you are using the same source a few paragraphs later, re-reference like this: <ref name=wiki1/>
