Elite scrum clinic at Clonakilty

Munster Rugby hosted an elite scrum clinic recently at Clonakilty Rugby Club, coordinated by coach development officer Ken O'Connell and Munster U-20 scrum coach Conor Twomey.

The Clonakilty and Bantry U-15 and U-18 packs took part in the session, observed by 11 coaches in total from each club. Twomey tutored the players on the technical side of scrummaging and focused on body shape in the scrum.

Munster Rugby would like to thank Clonakilty's loose-head prop Philip Poillot, recently back from Ireland U-18 Club international duty in Italy, for his assistance with the practical element of the scrum 'best practice' technique.
