Case Studies

Sale Rugby Club came to us without any performance analysis experience, but were looking to develop a department capable of supporting a premier European team.

We put forward several potential solutions, with Sale’s management settling on a three-year development plan. After an intensive pre-season training program, two analysts started part-time. With third-of-season reviews, we progressively built the analysis over the first season to successfully include: opposition analysis; in-game analysis with coach review stations; team-level post match analysis, including performance review sessions; and individual level reviews at stations throughout the club.

Now moving into the second season, we will be introducing a full-time analyst to work alongside one of the existing analysts. The full-time member will be working on a PhD study in the club alongside the analysis duties. We will be looking to develop the analysis to include training analysis and detailed individual player analysis, whilst the extra working hours will increase the depth of analysis on pre-existing areas. We will review developing our solutions at two points during the season, and at the close, to decide on the best steps to move this project forward.
