Wal­la­bies aim­ing scrum arrow

Townsville Bulletin - - SPORT -

THE Wal­la­bies have re­vealed their plans to shoot a scrum­mag­ing “arrow” through teams to dom­i­nate the key set piece in this Rugby World Cup year. Aus­tralia’s set- piece coach Mario Ledesma ( right)– a Pu­mas 84Test vet­eran – said the team’s much- maligned scrum would be­come a weapon rather than a li­a­bil­ity if the pack can de­liver his strat­egy. “Our way of think­ing is get­ting ev­ery­body re­ally square and try­ing to put all of the pres­sure through the hooker, more than one prop or the other, try­ing to get ev­ery­body work­ing through the hooker like an arrow.”
