All Blacks Forwards Coach
4 months ago
DID YOU KNOW? In the 2011 Rugby World Cup, the average number of rucks and mauls per game was 166.
In his latest module, New Zealand scrum coach, Mike Cron, looks at activities and drills to stay strong with movement in the scrummage and to build neck and core strength.
“Quite often I get asked to convert a player from flanker to prop, or from lock to prop. The first thing I’ll do to them is test their neck strength…” – Mike Cron

I have had much success using the other Mike Cron sessions so I have no doubt that this one will be up to the mark…but when will the full session be released
I firmly believe that Mike Cron is one of the best scrum coaches in the world. Definitely the best person to listen to for any coach who is coaching school boy rugby; and I’m sure any rugby at any age really. I would however, love to get the opinions of coaches of South Africa or Graham Rowntree of England. These are the teams with typically the strongest scrum in the world year on year.
