Great Martin: good explaination and great attention to details that make the difference


good session

South Africa

Me gusta aprender sobre el scrum, me gustaria ver el video con traduccion al español


Nice session.


Very good builder session for newer/inexperienced players and coaches to use at the start of the season.


Mike Cronies, very witty, full of knowledge and ideas, very practical analysis, excellent.


This is actually a fantastic follow up to Mike Cron’s intro stuff for scrums on the machine and the set up. Pairing the three together makes for a killer session. Cron really puts them in that great position and Martin gives them the power and endurance of power.


This is excellent for coaches at all levels but particularly those who are relatively new to the forward game.

Great Britain & Northern Ireland

Tried it out with my 11 year old forwards in the weekend. Definitely sorted out some curved back issues. Would like to see some technical vids concerned with co-ordinating the halfback with the hooker when ball is placed into scrum.

New Zealand

Great introduction to scrummaging position and great to see scrummaging getting some exposure.

Really emphasises strong position in a way that is good for young players but also for experienced players. Looking forward to more technical videos in this area.
