Midweek Madness - Powerful scrum sends pack and posts backwards

Midweek Madness - Powerful scrum sends pack and posts backwards

You would never think it were possible, but Hinckley Rugby Football Club’s big boys up front have given new meaning to the term ‘pushover try’. They drove the opposition pack from Luctonians back so far and with so much force, that they took down the posts in the process.

The try was not awarded, and the National League Two North fixture had to be moved to another field, before table-topping Hinckley went on to win the match 52-12.

“I didn’t really think anything of it until the post started falling down, the bloke behind ran for cover and then I just thought ‘well there’s £7,000 gone like that’,” Hinckley’s John Tilley told the BBC.

    You know, that's probably the most sensible option that they could take to solve that problem...instead they'll probably re-address the scrum engagement calls and change those, remove the need for flankers, make scrum halves be continually bound to the scrum, make the front row 4 players, then eventually play scrums across the pitch rather than end to end, before finally making them uncontested...
