Welcome to the IRB website. Here are a few tips to get the best out of our site.


Plug-ins are small pieces of software which work with your browser to give you extra functionality – like live sound, animation and interactive games. You should download the following plug-ins, if you have not got them already.


PDF stands for Portable Document Format and it is a cross platform document, which can be viewed through your browser or used for printing easily. For this reason, you will find a lot of the Laws and Regulations on the IRB site, and media-ready documents on the Sevens site, are in PDF format.
You will need to have Adobe Acrobat Reader to view these PDF files which you can get free by using the link HERE.
