Podcast 308 – Data Driven (with Simon Strachan)

Matt and Hugh are back this week for a different episode of the Green and Gold Rugby Show. This week that sat down with GAIN LINE Analytics Co-Founder and GM of Sport, Simon Strachan, to discuss the dynamics of using data to analyse rugby and how this can be applied to the Wallabies squad, as well as understanding how teams can use data win consistently.

Following that, they were then joined by our producer Nick W to discuss the named squad for South Africa, with a bit of the Super Rugby final thrown in for good measure.

You can check out the amazing work Simon and Ben Darwin do with GAIN LINE Analytics here.

    That was a really interesting discussion. Thanks for that. I didn’t realise how complex it was. I still wonder about the analysis and how effective it is seeing the Wallabies go from 3rd to 7th then 6th in world rankings. It’d be interesting to see how much of this was the coaching team either asking for the wrong information or ignoring what was provided.

    Do you have a link to his website? I’d love to see that Scott Robinson talk.

    Thanks

    That was really interesting. I like that while it is about the players, it’s actually more about the systems in place, the process and then the players fitting into that, not trying to fit the systems and process around a player.
    Thanks

    Thanks Nic. Razor described it well. He may be a break dancing weirdo but he’s got a few brains up there too
