“We monitor over 300 players from senior international to regional academy level on every training day,” Ciaran explains. “All information is monitored in the same way, using the same metrics to give consistency of data across training groups and compiled in a database. We use Catapult technology in every training session to monitor work completed, session intensity, duration, high speed distance and efforts,”
Ciaran Miller. Performance Pathway Sports Scientist, Welsh Rugby Union.
“Intensity is the key marker we look for in the players’ data. This is where the Catapult data is used to quantify the most intense periods of matchplay, across bouts ranging from five seconds up to 10-15 minutes. Our manager demands a high-intensity style of play, so I think having sports science support helps us to ensure that we’re getting the most out of our players,” Robinson says. “I think it’s important for us to continue working in this way and to take every game as it comes. Wearing the GPS in games allows us to know whether the players are adapting well to training and so far we’re happy.”

“Our football philosophy at Rotherham United demands that our fitness is paramount to the way we play, In order to be at our peak, for every player we create a Physical Passport that allows us to ascertain each individual’s athletic ratings that take into account training and match data among other performance measures. We use the term ‘passport’ as opposed to ‘profile’ as it insinuates movement from one activity to another. Without the passport approval we cannot progress and other interventions must take place. I completely trust Catapult to provide us with accurate, reliable and objective data that assists us in the ongoing analysis of every Rotherham United player. Our training weeks are always planned well in advance with the only reactive deviations in volume or intensity being altered on an individual basis. Midweek fixtures are becoming more frequent and matches can occur on any given day, so we must look to ensure players are within the realm of the physical KPIs identified on their Physical Passport even during congested periods. We cannot account for the physical environment during a match and this is where data analysis from Catapult enables us to make the executive decisions that follow days after in training.”
