The British and Irish Lions have turned to GPS technology to assist in their training programme.

Catapult Sports, an Australian company founded by Shaun Holthouse and Igor van de Griendt, specialises in the use of GPS and other sensor technology to measure the workrate of players and to maximise the benefits of injury rehabilitation programs.

The GPS receivers are worn by the player. Data from the GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer is transmitted to a computer on the sidelines. Catapult Sports say that the data can ensure a player trains to maximum effect and, by using historical data of each players normal training levels, they can tailor training programs, particularly during a rehabilitation regime, so that players do not re-injure themselves.

This is old hat. Most/all professional Rugby Union clubs in the UK and Ireland have been using GPS technology during training and player for some some years. The equipment is provided by several companies in UK and Europe.

Clubs like Leicester Tigers first started using it more than 5 years ago, with a limited number of transmitters carried by players during matches. Nowadays the majority of the players on the field carry them. They're usually in a pocket on the back of the neck. You can usually see the device standing out, and where the player isn't carrying one you can still see the pocket as they're now an integral part of the Kit.

This sounds like a company in convict land trying to cache in on the Lions.
