Appendix A

The tests below have been devised by World Rugby in conjunction with an expert test institute (Certottica srl) to assess the suitability of the Rugby Goggles for use in Rugby Union. The validity of the testing applied will be assessed as part of the Law Trial.

In addition to the formal tests specified below, a number of informal field tests have been carried out within the following parameters: anti-fogging, resistance to abrasion and field of vision. It is anticipated that formal tests will be devised for including in the specification in the future.

Standard Performance Specification for Rugby Goggles

1 Requirements
1.1 Ergonomics
Rugby Goggles shall be designed and constructed so that all normal playing movements can be carried out without hindrance or discomfort. Rugby Goggles shall be free from projections, sharp edges or other defects which are likely to cause discomfort or injury to the wearer or any other players during use. The Rugby Goggles shall be designed so that they can be worn comfortably with padded headgear ensuring that the retention system is covered by the headgear.
1.2 Construction
1.2.1 Materials
It is the manufacturer’s responsibility that all materials used should not be adversely affected by water, dirt, perspiration, toiletries, household soaps and detergents. All materials coming into contact with the wearer’s body will not be of the type known to cause skin disorders and shall not cause abrasion of either the wearer or other players.
1.2.2 Padding Materials
Any padding materials used in the manufacture of the Rugby Goggles must be for the purpose of comfort and not for protection from impact for the wearer. Padding materials must be waterproof and allow for regular cleaning without becoming unfit for purpose.
1.2.3 Finish
All edges shall be smooth and rounded
1.3 Design
1.3.1 Zone of Coverage
The shortest distance between the nose bridge and the top edge of the Rugby Goggles shall be 50-55mm. The top edge shall be straight with the area covered above both eyes being equal. No part of the Rugby Goggles shall protect any part of the nose below the bridge. The bottom edges of the ocular shall not extend below the wearer’s cheekbones. The minimum area covered by the Rugby Goggles is that enclosed by the points A,B,C & D in Figure 1.
1.3.2 Retention System
The retention system should be attached so that the Rugby Goggles remain in their normal position during play. If a headband is used, it should be affixed to both sides of the Rugby Goggles and pass around the back of the head. The minimum width of the strap shall be 30mm. Buckles or similar hard fixings that may be reasonably expected to cause injury may not be used. Rubber buttons or Velcro® type fixing materials are acceptable. If the strap covers the ears consideration for ensuring that the player’s hearing is not affected must be made. Any retention system used should be adjustable or self-adjusting.
1.3.3 Field of Vision
The Field of Vision shall allow the wearer adequate peripheral vision.
1.3.4 Ventilation
It is the manufacturer’s responsibility to provide for adequate ventilation in the goggle design.
1.4 Performance Requirements
1.4.1 Protection against High Speed Particles
Rugby Goggles shall withstand the impact of a 6mm nominal diameter steel ball with a minimum mass of 0.86g, striking the ocular at a speed of 120m/s. In addition, the Rugby Goggles shall withstand the impact of a 22mm nominal diameter steel ball with a minimum mass of 43g striking the ocular at a speed of 5.1m/s.

The tests shall be performed as per Section 2.2 and the following defects shall not occur:
  • Fracture of the ocular: a fracture shall have occurred if the ocular cracks, through its entire thickness into two or more pieces or material becomes detached from the surface away from the one struck by the ball, or if the ball passes through the ocular.
  • Deformation of the ocular: deformation shall be considered to have occurred if a mark appears on the white paper on the opposite side to that struck by the ball
  • Housing or Frame failure: failure shall be considered to have occurred if it separates into two or more pieces, or if the ball passes through the housing or the frame
For Rugby Goggles that constitute more than one piece, failure shall also be considered if the component parts become separated.
2 Test Methods and Procedures – Rugby Goggles
2.1 Head-forms
There are two sizes of reference head-form that should be used. The medium head-form approximates a 50th percentile adult male. The small head-form approximates a 60th percentile, 12 year old child. The nominal dimensions are shown in Table 1. The constructional details are given below and in the notes to the figure.

Where reference is made to a head-form within this Appendix A, the size of head-form (medium or small) to be used, shall be that which is appropriate to the goggle being assessed. Unless otherwise specified by the manufacturer of the Rugby Goggles, the medium size head-form shall be used.

The appropriateness of the head form specified for the goggle shall be confirmed by the test house. All tests on the Rugby Goggles shall be performed using only the one size of head-form selected.

Each head-form is available constructed in three materials:
  • cast epoxy resin, inscribed with the areas to be protected;
  • all aluminium;
  • an internal core covered by a nominal 12 mm thick layer of polyurethane of hardness (50 ± 5) IRHD.

Figure 1 – Reference head-form

Table 1: Dimensions of reference head-form

Dimension Value (mm)
Medium Small
a 218 206
b 111 110
c 144 131
d 178 166
e 45 42
f 18 18
g 60 53
h 111 110
Radius i 10 10
j 56 48
k 156 146
l 64 54
m 52 48
n 134 118

All dimensions which are horizontal and are from the front of the head-form to the rear of the head-form are parallel to a line from the tragion to the sub-orbital.

The points marked * are the impact centres specified for the increased robustness and high speed particle tests.

2.2 Test Methods for Protection against High Speed Particles
2.2.1 Principle
The Rugby Goggles are mounted on the test head-form. For each test, a steel ball is projected at different areas of the Rugby Goggles. The Rugby Goggles shall pass the test if none of the defects listed in Section 1.4.1 are detected, and if Rugby Goggles that comprise multiple parts do not separate during the test.
2.2.2 Apparatus
The apparatus for the impact attenuation test shall consist of the following (also see Figure 1):
Projecting Device – The device shall be capable of projecting:
  • a 22mm nominal diameter steel ball of 43g minimum mass at 5.1 m/s and
  • a 6mm nominal diameter steel ball of 0.86g minimum mass at 120 m/s
  • at a specified point on the eye protector. Two separate apparatus for each requirement may be used.
2.2.3 Procedure
The eye protector to be tested shall be placed on the appropriate head-form in the position corresponding to normal use.

A sheet of carbon paper on top of a sheet of white paper is attached to the head-form behind the Rugby Goggles. The head-form and Rugby Goggles assembly is positioned in the test apparatus.

For each individual test the ball is projected at the points of impact defined in Figure 1.

New eye-protectors shall be used for each individual point of impact.

The impacts are carried out at an ambient temperature of (23 ± 5) °C.
2.2.4 Points of Impact
There are five impact points, and these are defined with respect to the head-form rather than the Rugby Goggles. The ball is aimed at these impact points with the Rugby Goggles mounted in the normal use position.

The impact points shall be considered as any single point within a 10mm radius of one of five impact centres. These impact centres are denoted by an asterisk (*) in Figure 1.

The five impact points are defined as follows and must impact the Rugby Goggles on the ocular surface, otherwise the closest point on the ocular surface should be used:
  • the left eye frontal
  • the right eye frontal
  • the centre of the Rugby Goggles – a point mid-distance between the eyes and half way (± 10 mm) between the nose bridge and the upper edge of the ocular.
  • the left eye side
  • the right eye side
  • For frontal impacts the ball is projected normal to the vertical axis of the head-form and parallel to its optical axis along each line of sight.

    For lateral impacts the head-form is rotated about its vertical axis by 90° (left and right) from the frontal impact position.

    For this test, the polyurethane covered head-form, or other head-form known or demonstrated to provide equivalent results, shall be used.
