5 Steps to More Effective Rucking Spruce up your rucking technique to get quicker ball

1. Ruck beyond When a player hits a ruck, they should aim to end up beyondrepparttar ball. Even better is for them to be on their feet, moving forward two or three metres beyondrepparttar 148061 ball. This preventsrepparttar 148062 danger of too any bodies overrepparttar 148063 ball. Too often players come to rest onrepparttar 148064 ruck or just lean over. This just adds torepparttar 148065 traffic, legs and feet gettingrepparttar 148066 way ofrepparttar 148067 scrum half trying to clearrepparttar 148068 ball.

2. Inside foot When players arrive they should put their inside foot overrepparttar 148069 ball. This leads to three great advantages: Driving through and out, so clearing players more effectively Stronger body position throughrepparttar 148070 centre ofrepparttar 148071 ruck Less chance of feet hittingrepparttar 148072 ball
