Teams in the Suva Rugby Union are expected to be powerful on their scrummaging and forward play this season following the handing over of three scrummaging machines yesterday.
The scrum machines were handed over to some clubs by union chairman Commander Francis Kean yesterday.
Commander Kean reminded club representatives ensure maximum use of the scrum machines as a training equipment to help prepare for the 2014 season.
“This is something we planned last year to boost our rugby,” Commander Kean told club representatives at Albert Park yesterday.
The scrum machines, with a value of over $4000, are expected to improve on an area local rugby lacks – scrummaging and forward play.
“Our scrum guru, Belasio Vukiwai will be visiting clubs which will use the scrum machines to teach and perfect our scrummaging. Suva is renowned for its scrummaging skills and this will help our clubs prepare well.
“We thank officials of the Suva Rugby Union for recognising the value of scrummaging in our rugby.
“One scrummaging machine will be used by the Tacirua, Savura and Newtown Rugby Club; the second will be shared by Harlequins, National Fire Authority and Covenant Brothers, and the third between Tovata, Wakanisila which are new clubs, and Nasinu.
“The scrummaging machines are our investment in rugby development which will be good for Suva and rugby in Fiji.”
He said three more scrummaging machines would be distributed next year. Some clubs like Raiwaqa, Nabua and Marist have their own scrummaging machines.
