Hawk-Eye technology to be used at Rugby World Cup
DUBLIN—Hawk-Eye, a system used to judge line calls in tennis, cricket and Premier League soccer, will operate at the upcoming Rugby World Cup to help television match officials with tight decisions.
World Rugby, the sport’s governing body, said Monday the video-replay technology will be used following successful trials.
Hawk-Eye will give TMOs multiple angle replays in real time, slow motion and with zoom-functionality. It will also help medical teams identify and review head impacts.
Brett Gosper, chief executive of World Rugby, says “the system has clear benefits for the match official team, the medical team and fans around the world.”
