The Scrum

Welcome to our very first rugby lesson. There is really so much to learn when it comes to the rugby so for those who are new to the game, today’s lesson is about the scrum.

Here is a quick rundown;

A scrum is made up of the 8 forwards from each team. The ball is rolled into the tunnel between the opposing “packs” by the scrum half (No. 9) and hooked back by a player from either side.  All players not in the scrum must be behind the back of their side of the scrum, otherwise they are off-side.

Below is a great video I found on YouTube which explains the scrum really well.
