mitsubishi motors performance tests england rugby squad

London, 31st October 2016: Mitsubishi Motors in the UK, the Official Performance Partner of England Rugby, is using ‘Intelligent Motion’ to test the team ahead of the Old Mutual Wealth Series by putting players through a series of alternative performance tests.  

England Rugby Captain, Dylan Hartley and fellow teammates, Jonny May and Alex Goode were challenged by Head Coach Eddie Jones to meet ‘England’s biggest fan’ at the MIRA Transport Technology Centre in Nuneaton. The England Internationals put their skills to the test through a series of intuitive challenges up against a 45 mph wind, courtesy of the UK’s only full scale aerodynamic wind tunnel. The challenges, in the extreme conditions generated by England's biggest fan, included trialling their quick feet drills, target practice and hand eye co-ordination.

Combining the Mitsubishi Motor brand’s heritage in innovation and technology with England Rugby head coach, Eddie Jones’ intelligent intuition for the game, the players’ reactions, accuracy, and agility were all performance tested.

The Intelligent Motion campaign builds on Mitsubishi Motors in the UK’s partnership with England Rugby which will shine a light on the smart thinking and play within the team. Mitsubishi Motors are supporting the game from grassroots level all the way up to the elite squad, building towards the 2019 Rugby World Cup.

As Performance Partner, Mitsubishi Motors will also be supporting the next generation of England players, as principal partner and front of shirt sponsor of the England U20s, U18s, and elite player pathway.

To see whether Dylan, Alex and Jonny passed the performance test and find out more about the partnership follow Mitsubishi Motors on Facebook and Twitter.
