Bradford are set to trial a new “state of the art” GPS monitoring system for their players in Sunday’s friendly against Leeds at Headingley.
This is believed to be the first time that an English Super League has used the modern satellite system in a competitive game in this country.
The full squad will wear the system, which is powered by the same technology as was used by the England Rugby League team in the recent Gillette Four Nations Tournament.
Bulls Head of Physical Performance, Geoff Evans, said: “The use of this system will provide us with valuable information in regards to Rugby related Physical Performance Parameters. We will endeavour to use this information to improve all aspects of our preparation and performance for the forthcoming season.”
Bulls Head Coach Steve McNamara added: “Having seen the technology and its huge benefits in place at other organisations, both in Australia and in the Gillette Four Nations Tournament, we are delighted as a club to have the opportunity to use this system to enhance us both for the short and long term.”
