VILLAREJO, Diego; PALAO, José Manuel  and  ORTEGA, Enrique. Differences in technical and tactical indicators of performance between winners and losers in the Women Rugby World Cup 2010. CPD [online]. 2016, vol.16, n.1, pp.269-274. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this study was to determine the technical-tactical differences between winning and losing teams in high-level women's rugby. Thirty matches between 12 national teams of the Women 's Rugby World Cup 2010 were analyzed. The studied variables were behaviors related to the scrum and lineouts, the game development, the rucks and mauls, the points, and the penalties. A descriptive and inferential analysis of the data was done (student t-test and discriminant analysis). Winning teams carried out more tries and try conversions, and they lose fewer rucks and lineouts than losing teams. These results can serve as reference values for training and for performance analysis of the competition.

Keywords : team sports; performance; game analysis; reference values.
