Our client RG Maintenance came to Papa Bravo with an idea which emerged through experience in developing ideas for training aid products alongside the Ospreys Rugby team in South Wales. The idea looked to address the training needs of players, specifically how they improve their aim so that their execution is perfect each time. Highly innovative, the unique idea to create an aid that enhanced throwing precision when taking a lineout was born.
Existing rigs produced by the client were analysed ensuring the principles shown to enhance the players abilities were central to the detailed design of the product The addition of variable targets for both the lobbed and torpedo throw in techniques which were adjustable along their length and height made the unit extremely versatile and offered a maximum customisation to suit the varying needs of the players within the team. The solution needed o save time and provide a continuous practice a catchment zone was added to the upper part of the device.
The training aid has proven to be a success for the Ospreys and is now fundamental to the training sessions and used by all ages and abilities, clearly demonstrating its effectiveness. Some of Wales’ most promising rugby talent can be seen utilizing the training aid at Welsh rugby development schools across the country.
