This interactive application provides a visual representation of the likelihood of kick success at every point on the rugby pitch. By providing unique insights in an intuitive format, the application both educates newcomers to the sport while engaging existing fans. For newcomers, the application includes a series of graphics and descriptions designed to shed light on the fundamentals of the three different types of rugby kicks: conversions, drop-goals, and penalty kicks. For rugby enthusiasts, the application's interactive heat map provides a visual summary of the average success rates of professional rugby kickers, while the application's point-and-click functionality allows users to explore the names, countries, and teams of the world's most accurate fly-halfs from every angle on the pitch. We utilize modern statistical interpolation methods to calculate percentages based on raw data from the RU26 Super Scout feed, and the application accesses this information via our internal API.
