Player trackers

Player trackers to revolutionise Origin experience

Every player involved in the State of Origin series will be wearing special RFIDs (Radio Frequency Identification Device) which will allow host broadcaster Channel Nine to enhance the statistical component of its coverage via what will be the Telstra Tracker.

The devices will also importantly allow advances to be made from a player welfare perspective.

Following a two-year development process, the new technology will be seen for the first time in Game One of the series, next Wednesday, May 31, at Suncorp Stadium.
