No quick fix for Flying Fijians scrum

November 15, 2012 4:04 am

Fiji Rugby Union coaching director, Frank Boivert says there’s no quick fix for the Flying Fijians scrum woes in Europe.

It’s been the thorn in Fiji’s side against England and against Gloucester but Boivert believes they can try their best to improve their tactics against Ireland A on Sunday.

“Scrum work is long term, it’s something you have build on from year to year. Therefore all they can do now, is use some tricks by having a very quick put it and having the No.8 at channel one so that he can get teh abll out as quick as possible. Now this is not possible on the oppositions put it so the only they can do is to twist the scrum to de-stabalise the footwork of the opposition and this is all they can do to try and salvage something in scrum situations.”

Boivert says players frustrations would have culminated from continuously being beaten during forward play.

He adds proper training and competition needs to be put in place at age grade level rugby so that future national teams are ready to match Northern Hemisphere style rugby.
