Rugby

Rugby is a sport that requires good physical and motor preparation. A lot of running, great number of sprints, changes in the direction and ground fights, make the players do a lot of work on the pitch. The Sonda Sports system will allow you to measure it, draw the right conclusions and optimally prepare your team.

Measure what matters

Performance monitoring

Our devices (GPS vests, sports trackers and heart rate monitors) allow you to precisely measure the most important physical parameters, such as total distance, heart rate and speed thresholds, sprints, metabolic power or Player Load.

Professional analysis

Use the computing power of the cloud and analyze key data on a professional analytical platform. Track 100+ metrics and 30 key stats, compare players, manage your team and plan training sessions.

Safety and comfort

You don't need to install any software to use our system. You log in to the application via our website and gain constant access to data thanks to the internet cloud. All you need is a laptop or any mobile device and WiFi.

Key performance parameters in Rugby

The Sonda Sports system allows you to monitor such important parameters in rugby as distance covered, heart rate and speed thresholds, sprints, accelerations and decelerations, Player Load, maximum speed and many others. Thanks to the analysis of these data, you will be able to determine the potential and physical abilities of players, shape their motor features, plan training microcycles, choose the optimal loads and track their current condition. Players comparison and team statistics will help you to compile your squad, manage fatigue and reduce the risk of injuries resulting from overtraining or undertraining.

Sprints by distance

Sprints by Distance

Distance / min

Distance based intensity marker. The parameter allows you to monitor the intensity of a given training unit and to adjust the training load compared to the match load. In simple words, it is a measure of the workload done in a given time (usually a minute).

Acute to Chronic Workload Ratio for a player

Shows the relationship between acute load and chronic load. ACWR allows you to control and keep the player in the zone of high load and low risk of injury.

Very High Intensity Distance

Running at high speed requires more effort than running at medium speed. This is a good measure to see how much distance has been covered with great intensity.

Coach of Polish Rugby Union

How does Sonda Sports help the Polish national team?

As rugby is a high-intensity sport, it requires good physical preparation. However, certain specialization means that players have completely different tasks on the pitch.

Although the specifics and requirements for each position in the 15-person rugby are completely different, the motor training plan is very similar - with some specialized elements for players of attack and those who form the back line. The players of the back are stronger and more stocky, they work more on aerobics and resistance, while attackers are more agile and faster, therefore the development of these qualities determines their training. In 7-person rugby there is no such significant difference between the players - all of them must be agile, show dynamics and be prepared for anaerobic work during the match.

“Thanks to the GPS data, I know what elements I should work on and with who, especially after training camps that reproduce the match conditions. Group work is a specific thing - we look at the team as a whole, but also consider individual features and Sonda Sports helps us with it” explains Paweł Stempel, Motor Preparation Coach of the Polish National Team. “I use the same parameters for forwards and backs: heart rate, speed zones, TRIMP, distance covered and changes in pace. Later, I take them into account when planning a subsequent training period”.
