Brian Fitzpatrick

Brian Fitzpatrick is the director and consultant of the company. Brian’s expertise derives from working many teams, in many sports, across various levels in Ireland and the U.K.

Brian first inkling of becoming an analyst happened when he was in his late teens playing rugby in Belvedere College. Brian is and was an out half, calling the moves and on a Thursday after the team was named for Saturday, he would put together a tactics sheet to look at what moves, calls and strategies would work best with the team that was picked. On Sunday he would agonise over each kick, keeping detailed stat sheets of his kicking performance (often not great stats!) and reflect on his own performance.

This agonising and self analysis is something that many schoolboy rugby players and more do on a weekly basis and find enjoyable. Brian aspired to re-kindle that joy of improving performance by doing a Sports Science degree.

Doing his dissertation with the Welsh Rugby Union in 2014 investigating the intervals between high intensity activities in tier 1 rugby internationals, Brian achieved a first class honours. This led him to doing an internship in Ireland working closely with many of Ireland’s biggest teams including the Dublin Senior Hurlers, getting to the All Ireland Quarter Finals in Semple Stadium.

Brian then became the Academy Analyst at London Irish Rugby Club. Being part of the U18 premiership winning support staff in his first season before being promoted to Academy Analyst and Administrator. Alongside his role with London Irish, he worked for both Esher RFC and the IRFU exiles programme and more recently the newly established IRFU IQ programme.
