Watch the video IBM Predictive Analytics,Preventing Player Injury and Player Development for NSW Waratahs

The NSW Waratahs Rugby team has partnered with IBM for an Australian-first initiative, putting predictive analytic technologies in to play. In recent years, sport has become more technical and analytics has become a critical asset for professional sports teams. The science behind the sport is being brought to the foreground and businesses, like the NSW Waratahs, are realising the power that data and predictive insights brings to the game.

The predictive analytics technology will analyse player data from multitude of sources, to build a clear picture of each individual player’s wellbeing and performance. These insights will enable the Waratahs coaching team to anticipate the likelihood of a player being injured, allowing them to modify the player’s personalised training program to maximise their training load and minimise their risk of injury. This information helps the club to understand how to best manage each player and field the best possible team throughout the season.

NSW Waratahs Athletic Development Manager Haydn Masters says, “The aim of our strength and conditioning program is to improve athletic performance and increase injury resilience to ensure players spend the most amount of time possible on the field. IBM’s predictive analytics technology gives us a very objective, sensitive and reliable measure of predicting each player’s limit and their injury risk and allowing us to modify training accordingly.”
