JAR­GON BUSTER Scrag

Rugby World - - FRONT ROW -

Hart­pury Col­lege will again com­pete in the World Schools Fes­ti­val in South Africa in

2019. The 20-team event – the brain­child of Heyneke Meyer – will be staged at Paul Roos Gym­na­sium. Hart­pury head coach Wayne Thomp­son said of the side’s re­turn to the tour­na­ment: “We pro­duced 11 school­boy in­ter­na­tion­als last sea­son and we wanted to be tested by the best, and what bet­ter way to test the play­ers than in South Africa?” …the act of tack­ling or slow­ing down an op­po­nent by grab­bing their shirt. ‘Scrag’ is also the name for run­ning team moves against op­po­si­tion in train­ing, which is not full con­tact but more phys­i­cal than touch.
