HAWKEYE TECHNOLOGY IS to be used for the first time at an England match in Twickenham this weekend in a bid to help medical teams assess potential concussions during games.
The introduction of the technology on a trial basis — one of a number of new measures being tested ahead of this autumn’s Rugby World Cup — will also be used to provide additional assistance to the television match official (TMO) in taking decisions over contentious scores.
According to the Daily Telegraph, the new technology is understood to be a significant upgrade on the World Rugby trial that was introduced in a number of Pro 12 club matches last season.

The new technology will be used to help the England and France medical teams, as well as the independent match doctor, identify head clashes that may have gone unnoticed by officials or traditional TV cameras.
While the TMO will have access to the same angles they always did, the addition of Hawkeye will allow for access to simultaneous multiple-angle replays in real time and slow motion as well as an enhanced zoom facility.
