Telstra Tracker to be introduced to women's Origin clash

History will be made in women's Holden State of Origin on Friday night with Telstra Tracker to be introduced and in use during Channel Nine commentary at North Sydney Oval.

Telstra Tracker has been in use across men's State of Origin clashes and Telstra Premiership finals series since 2017, combining sport and technology to give insights into player performance through speed, intensity and ground coverage.

NSW host Queensland at the suburban venue after an intense 16-10 result in last year's inaugural clash. 

NSW fullback Corban McGregor, who works on her agility and speed with sprint guru Roger Fabri away from the game, was eager to see the results and believes fans will be left pleasantly surprised.

"The girls do work hard and it's always exciting to see the figures pop up on the screen," McGregor told NRL.com.

"I think the viewers would be very interested to get a gauge, or a comparison, with the men's game.

"It's an awesome thing that this tracking component has now been included in our game too. It kind of emphasises the elite level of the women's game."

McGregor inspired by Bremner

McGregor said common GPS trackers were part of the women's game but only consistently used at an elite or international level to track basic performance – especially distance travelled and heart rate. 

"We're so used to wearing the trackers now – for a couple of years – but we haven't really received all the data back," McGregor said.

"So this will be good to get an overview of the work we've done throughout the game, and how much of an impact we actually did make statistically rather than how we felt we went."

Stay tuned to NRL.com for some of the top performing results from the game.
