News : Accenture Unveils New Analysis Team for 2016 RBS 6 Nations
London Jan 27, 2016 -- Accenture (NYSE: ACN), the Official Technology Partner of the RBS 6 Nations Rugby Championship, unveiled a new team of experts who will combine their insight with Accenture’s data analysis to enrich the fan’s experience of what is happening on the pitch during the 2016 Championship.
Nick Mallett, former head coach for Italy and South Africa national rugby union teams, will again join the team for the duration of the championship. This year the team will be bigger. Mallett will be joined by Rugby World Cup winner Ben Kay and former England prop David Flatman. Both will offer their renowned rugby insight and tactical awareness to complement Mallett and the Accenture team’s data analysis expertise, helping fans to see beyond raw match data.
Known for his analytical approach, Mallett guided the Italians as head coach through four RBS 6 Nations Championships and the 2011 Rugby World Cup. As coach of the Springboks, Mallett masterminded a record 17 successive Test wins, an unbeaten Tri-Nations Championship triumph, and took them to the semi-finals of the 1999 Rugby World Cup.
Combining more than 60 years of playing and coaching experience with Accenture’s analytics and business intelligence tools and expertise on the panel, the analysis team will provide a data-driven perspective on rugby during all 15 RBS 6 Nations games taking place at Twickenham, BT Murrayfield, Principality Stadium, Aviva Stadium, Stade de France and Stadio Olimpico.
