    Anyone seen a game where the TMO used it? I never saw it in use at the warm ups?

    Don't get confused between "Hawkeye", the bit of tennis/cricket technology that does ball-tracking and the company Hawkeye Innovations that developed it. They have a lot of other tech as well, and "Hawkeye" is just part of the whole package.

    Their Replay Technology Suite does things such as recording all the video streams from all the cameras in real time and making those streams available to replay officials immediately, as well as adding split screens and zoom features to the existing camera angles to give instant access to multiple replays

    The most important thing about it though is that it takes the supply and control of game video for replay officials out of the hands of the broadcaster, and gives the TMO direct access to all the video. Hopefully, this will mean no more "home advantage" for the broadcasters who have often been guilty of unbalanced use of replays, e.g. replaying visiting team offences over and over, while ignoring home team offences.

    The RWC explanation of how the benefits of Hawkeye:

    Should be worthwhile.
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    I'm glad to see that they'll be using it for head injury assessments too. Not sure George North will be too happy about it though...
