Sam Needs, founder of Scrum Strong, has been running scrum clinics with all our Warringah Rep Teams and Village Clubs.

These sessions have been for junior players and coaches alike, with the main focus being neck safety in conjunction with body positioning and awareness. Correcting individual body shape, starting from a most basic level is essential before players can progress to more live scenarios.

Sam Needs has played professional rugby for over 10 years and is a professional scrum coach. He has authored books on the science of scrummaging and neck safety for players and coaches – so knows his stuff. These session are funded by Warringah Hillbillies and Friends of Warringah and we are extremely lucky to have him spend time with our players.
