Whenever Mara shares anything that might add to work in sport, I try to work through the package or process she shares.
I have done this with cowplot today and have created a very basic GitHub repository to support this exploration of the cowplot package (link). I have used a very brief example from the 2019 NRL season. I use Elo rating points as the basis of what I do here (link).
My csv file has four data points for one team: the highest Elo points recorded thus far; the median for this team this season; the lowest points recorded; and the current week (week 19).
My cowplots included the following worked examples:
