Scrum Ready provides coaches with a step-by-step guide to preparing players to play in the scrum. Coaches should use this resource, alongside relevant age grade law variations to ensure players are prepared correctly for playing in the prop and hooker positions.

Profile Preparation

Perfect the Profile

Engagement

Every player must be suitably prepared both physically and technically to be able to scrummage. It is therefore important to develop players in a logical fashion, through a staged development programme.

 

Implementing the essential techniques and skills at an early age will ensure a strong foundation for

future development and provide a safe environment for players to engage.

 

The resource is broken down into three stages based on players scrummaging experience and ability:

 

Stage 1 : Profile Preparation

 

Stage 2 : Perfect the Profile

 

Stage 3 : Engagement

 

Should a player be new to the front row, the coach should ensure that the player is able to demonstrate basic scrum posture before being asked to scrummage in a live game.

 

Scrum Ready can also be used as an assessment tool as it outlines the progression that the player should undertake in order to play in the front row. Coaches should ensure front row players are competent at each stage before progressing to the next. If a player does not make it through the assessment (relevant to their age grade law variation), then further training relevant to the experience level of the player should be undertaken.

 

At all times coaches should ensure that their players are fully aware of the appropriate scrum law

variations, and are suitably trained in the correct engagement sequence.
