6 Nations – England versus Ireland in numbers

It’s that time again, the 6 Nations in back on our screens this weekend after a week-long break. Amongst all of the grunting, mud and big hits there’s a whole load of technology on show during the tournament. Gathering data and insights is not something new to sport, but the manner in which it’s being done is becoming ever more sophisticated.

The good folk over at Accenture are no strangers to technology and their ‘Inside the Locker Room’ series is an interesting amalgamation of numbers on the upcoming fixture.

England clearly play a more aggressive game higher up the pitch but neither team is a slouch in defence. It remains to be seen whether or not the stats reflect the result!

I have a keen interest in anything from the original Star Wars trilogy through to the Star Wars Expanded Universe – as well as everything that encompasses. Mostly interested in things which fly or make noise (ideally both), I like playing with new gadgets and buying phones on a whim.
