The Lineout Project with Dewald Senekal is where we take you into the deepest of depth of lineout analysis ever seen.

We are going to be looking at each of the 2021 6 Nations team’s intricacies in their lineouts.

As a starting point, Dewald is going to be demonstrating how to get the most out of the ‘basic’ information such as numbers and set ups according to pitch location.

Dewald will be using video and animations to demonstrate what the teams are trying to do at lineout time.

BF Sports Analysis will be demonstrating our ‘Expected Points’ (xP) metric to measure each team’s ability to score from lineout situations.
