Rugby Drill Demonstration

Description

Building a 3 person front row.

Hooker forms 1st, standing with shoulders lowered and knees bent to about 3/4 height. Arms up in the air in a 'flying' position.

Props then bind underneath the hookers arms, with their inside arms around the back of the hooker.

Coaching points

Use a scrum machine if available.

Crouch, Bind, Set.

Note:

From the start of the 2013/14 Aviva Premiership Rugby season, the league will be part of a global trial of a new scrum engagement sequence, aimed at enhancing player welfare by reducing impact on engagement.
Referees will now say: "Crouch, Bind, Set."

Props will now be expected to crouch on the referee's call.

Bind using their outside arm after the referee has called bind.

The front rows will maintain the bind until the referee calls set. At that point, the two packs will engage.
