Huddersfield Giants have continued their preparations for the 2020 season by appointment a new Head Analyst.

Lewis Chapman will take the reigns as the one of the key performance analysers at the club and newly appointment Head of Rugby Andy Kelly sees the appointment as vital to the club’s progression.

“The role of the data analyst grows each year with the advent of technology into the coaches and players daily routines,” Kelly said.

“What the good analysts do is free up time for the coaches to work with the players on the areas that are felt necessary. A picture can paint a thousand words they say and for players in particular to actually see where they are on the field, the lines they take, the depth of their runs and such like is a great tool for development and improvement.”
