Best from

  • A scrum in the opposition’s half. You must have room to go to side (don’t go too narrow)

.

  • A situation where you want to set up second phase ball behind the opposition scrum, so their defence is tracking backwards, causing disruption in their running lines.Turning slow srcum ball into fast ruck ball

Why it works

 

8 draws out the back row defence bu a fast and arcing run, creating several options:

 

  • Gets across gainline and runs at half back

  • Creaving a gap beside the scrum. If 8 runs quickly and wide enough, the back row defenders will be out of position allowing a free run for 7 from the right side of the scrum.

 

Good if you have

  • A quick 8 off the base of a scrum, with good handling skills.
  • Already had your 8 run a move from the back of the scrum.
  • A strong running 7 you want to get into the game.
  • A scrum which can wheel slightly so the tighthead side gets ahead of the loosehead.

 

 

 

What players do

  • 8 gets the ball onto his right foot. He picks and goes to the right, angling away from the scrum. Once past the gain line, he commits the opposition back row and then passes the ball back inside to 7.
  • 7 waits until 8 gets past him, before disengaging and receiving a pass on 8’s inside shoulder.

Common mistakes

  • 8 delays the disengage.
  • 8 runs too tight to the scrum or too laterally. He needs to go forward and create space.

Think about

7 passing to 6 who has run around from the left side of the scrum. In which case 8 and 7 need to pass well before contact, otherwise 6 has little chance of taking the ball cleanly.
