A look at England and Georgia's epic scrum training session

Eddie Jones made good on his desire to have England face off against "the strongest scrum pack in the world" as England welcomed Georgia to Latymer Upper School in London on Tuesday. Footage of the session is everything a die-hard fan of scrums could want.

This awesome video emerged a few days ago, showing some highlights of that joint training session, most notably, scrum after scrum. Wayne Barnes was even brought in as referee.

We've known for a few weeks of Jones' desire to have a joint training session between England and Georgia. As England go for a third Six Nations championship in a row, no training opportunity will be ignored. The session did not disappoint.

Speaking after, Jones said: "It was an excellent session for us... The Georgians scrum in a quite unique way, and they are able to transfer pressure without moving their feet, so our front-rowers will have learned a lot today. It was a great learning experience for us."

Jones' counterpart, Milton Haig, will have gained valuable and much-desired insight into quality organization and management. 

The calls for Georgia's inclusion into the Six Nations aren't going away any time soon. Their increasing rate of play cannot be stunted much longer.

While it may not happen in the foreseeable future, everyone has their own idea for just how such a scenario could make sense. No doubt, the hurdles are substantial. However, Georgia continue to rise and experiences like these will go a long way to helping in their quest for progress.
