The ART of Scrummaging is hereFor a long time now the rugby world has been at odds over the evolution of the scrum. The time it takes to complete a scrum and the frequent collapses have cast a shadow over the great game. It's time for somebody to step up and tackle this issue head on. TOPO Rodriguez has done that with his groundbreaking new book The ART of Scrummaging (TAOS).In his day, TOPO was the best loose head prop in the world. His expertise in the scrum is legendary and no one played with more passion or determination. This, combined with the frustration he feels at the state of the modern-day scrum and his primary concern for player safety, has led him to produce the book which is set to shake up the rugby world.Not content with just relying on his own expertise, however, TOPO has called upon some of the great names of international rugby to create a 218-page body of work that is unrivalled in its depth and knowledge. Famous names, such as Sir Wilson Whineray, Cobus Visagie, Philip Orr, Al Baxter, Pieter de Villiers, Ray Williams, Philip Keith-Roach and Sir Brian Lochore have all added their contributions on what they see as the problems with the scrum and offered ways to rectify them. Read some of their testimonials here.Alan Jones AO, who coached TOPO with the Wallabies, has written the foreword and is certain that the book and its findings are long overdue, "I recommend worldwide support. And I strenuously urge that the rugby decision makers take the hours of work and the findings those hours have produced very seriously indeed. The rugby scrum is seriously in need of reform. It can begin with this document."Learn more about The ART of Scrummaging and find out how the book came about. Buy The ART of Scrummaging here.
