Eddie Jones and the England Rugby Squad
25th November 2016 by Andrew Knight
The England rugby team are using drone camera technology in training this week, at their Pennyhill park training base in their bid to become the World’s Number 1 rugby team.
The drones, hovering a hundred foot above the training pitches, allow the England coaching team to watch live recordings while the squad are training, enabling them to monitor and analyse scrummaging, running lines and team shape as well as defensive positioning.
Jones said ‘The drone is fantastic for us. It’s another piece of technology that helps us accelerate the programme, allows us to have another piece of vision that sees how well we work off the ball and in rugby, work off the ball is just so important.’
Spider Aerial Filming are the company behind the drone filming. Their credits include aerial shots for Downton Abbey.
