Digital Consulting Partner of the Qantas Wallabies

These days, stats are the lifeblood of any sports team. That’s why, when the ARU chose theirs this season, Accenture was the first name on the team sheet.

Working with the Wallabies coach, Michael Cheika, we’re designing and building a bespoke tool that will give him a 360˚ analysis of every player and drive greater insights into on-field and off-field performance stats.

How is Accenture helping the Wallabies?

Crunching tackles. Crunching data

Your match-day potential is all about having the right players. With more than 9,000 stats for more than 10,000 players, we’ve equipped the Wallabies’ coaches with a new tool: data and insights combined.

Define New Opportunities

Powering up the scrum

How can the Wallabies boost their power where they need it most? With 360 degrees of detailed analysis for every players’ performance, on and off the field.

Untrap New Data

Selecting the right XV

We give Wallabies coaches the inside information on more than 10,000 players and their performance over 10 years. They can compare players at the touch of a button and get an instant visualisation of how they stack up against each other, over time.

Create New Culture

Strategic game plays

We’re providing coaches with greater insights to help them prepare against whoever they’re facing on the pitch.

Define New Opportunities

A digital edge

Rugby’s a game of heart and passion. But it also needs intelligence. That’s what Accenture’s giving the Wallabies; detailed analytics of players and competitors– all in one digital place.
