The technology tracks each of those components and in theory it should be instantly identifiable if players are onside or off-side from kicks, if the ball has gone forward or back and the direction the ball comes out of the hands when passed.

Interesting - as I reckon that's the big one the technology has to get correct. So the players get to wear transmitters hey. Beep boop warning will robinson, I'm a robot. lol

Sorry coach, I accidentally on purpose smashed my transmitter!

You are fast becoming (and don’t take this the wrong way ) the back door specialist with those bloody paywalls. @globaleagle has usually been the GOAT, that’s the first time I’ve seen him cop a 404.
Much appreciated.

True dat.

It's almost midnight here...so I may be off my game! lol

The only point of it will be to stop the howler. While Manly has got the short end of some doozies over the years, I think the latter possibility is far more likely.
Plenty of great tries that look fine to any footy fan will be pulled back on a technicality ruled by a computer chip.

Couldn't read the article but you would think this could also speed up calls such as 40-20s and automatically registering successful goal kicks.

interesting to see how it will monitor passes from a player at speed that passes backwards but almost instantly floats forward.
