The rugby scrum

The scrum is how play is started or re-started in a rugby game. Sometimes it’s used when a ball is knocked out of bounds or when an infraction of some sort has been committed. Essentially, the rugby scrum is used when play stops and needs to get going again. It’s an amazing thing to watch. All the forwards on the field pile together in three fairly organized rows and the players’ heads are interlocked. It looks dangerous and nasty but rarely results in injury.

Once the scrum is set and the ball is dropped the players try to control it with their feet and gain possession. Whoever manages to punch it out gains possession and the scrum breaks up until it’s needed again to resume play on the rugby field. The scrum is one of the most interesting things about a game of rugby and if you’ve never watched you really should.
