Another interesting show with Matt Ferguson scrum coach as the guest.
He was able to tell everyone about what the Saints try to do and some of the technical points. Also said when at RFU used to coach the refs on what was happening in there.

Worth a listen to those that want to try and understand the scrum a little more.

Itís a great listen, here is the link for anyone else


The opta stats are poppycock, our scrum is the weakest in the prem on other teams ball - letís see a penalty count number on scrums. But he is playing with the hand heís been dealt, interesting on new technique.

So for all your talk about moneyball and mining the data, when it doesnít suit you itís ďpoppycockĒ? Ha.

Was interesting to hear him talk there. Clearly is a coherent strategy bedding in.

As the bloke who was always languishing our on the wing I found Matís insights really informative (and surprisingly interesting!). I was also left feeling a bit more positive regarding our current scrum situation
