6 Nations Week 1
Individual Game Scoring Analysis
Welcome to my first ever Blog as part of InterWorks Europe. It’s an exciting time here at InterWorks Europe which just so happens to coincide with the Annual 6 Nations Rugby Championship. Rugby for me is a passion, being an avid Ulster and Ireland supporter, I thought how best to introduce myself to Tableau Interactive Dashboards and the start of my InterWorks Europe Blogging journey.
Rugby, as like any sport, has the normal array of statistics and data to supplement the post game scrutiny and subsequent win/loss diagnosis. Although these statistics are standard throughout the Rugby world, they don’t really give us an opportunity to display the game visually without boring even the most obsessed fans.
I have, in part, taking this to task. To try and make a number of data visualizations that are informative, interactive, and for the most part INTERESTING. Letting people know what happened in the game, Not just a Final Score and various percentages.
Over the next few weeks and months as the 6 Nations Championship plays out before our eyes on the TV screens and packed Stadiums throughout Europe, I will be dissecting the data from each and every match to bring updated and new visualizations to publish and post here on the InterWorks Europe Blog. 2013 RBS 6 Nations Visualization 1.
This first visualization shows the Scoring details within each of the three matches played over the opening weekend of the 2013 RBS 6 Nations. Please select a Game from the ‘Matches Played’ box.
After selecting your game of choice, feel free to select or hover over the icons within the Scoring Information Table for Player and Points Scored Analysis.
