Irish Rugby on a High – Vote for Stephanie Roche

It has been a great Autumn for Irish rugby – with great success for all the provinces and the International squad. Big players perform best when it matters most but apart from ability the other common factor is impeccable preparation and planning. Video analysis delivers the collateral for best in class game day planning for the team and individual player roles within the squad, writes Pete Kelly.

The Guinness Pro 12  has been more competitive than many had expected and perhaps less predictable than most would have thought. The four provinces are neatly grouped, but few would have foreseen the current order, at the start of the season. Nevertheless it’s all four in the top six, with Performance Analysis solutions supported by Avenir Sports.
