‘Mad Dog Mentality’: Raptors Reveal Science Behind Scrum

GLENDALE, Colo. (CBS4) – Rugby is hard-hitting, fast-paced sport and it’s not for the weary.

It’s pretty much the sporting equivalent of a demolition derby.

The quintessential element of rugby is the scrum. It’s one of the most intense moments in all sports.

The Glendale Raptors give CBS4 an inside look at what goes down during the scrum.

“It’s three guys up front, three big boys, two tall guys behind, and three guys in the back. The little guy puts the ball in,” said David Williams, Raptors head coach. “The guy in the middle, called the hooker, the number two, he hooks the ball to the back of the scrum, and then we play on from there. So it’s basically a restart of a game.”
