Rugby Scrum and the front row

Weight Training Journal

Rugby Articles

The front row made up of props and a hooker are tough and the foundation of a scrum. They are rarely in a position to score but props remain indispensable, you can't have a scrum without props. The two positions of the front row, the prop and hooker are highly technical and require training and experience. In case of injury spare props must be on the sidelines for an international match to continue play. An untrained, inexperienced wing or fullback is not desirable and may cause many breakdowns in play, but at least the game can continue. To throw anyone in at prop is dangerous and and can make a scrum impossible.
