Here are some videos with some drills every player should use to improve their strength for scrumming. They are easy to do and only need a friend or two. You should aim to do these drills twice a week at least.

Remember that your CORE is very important for successful scrumming as well as your LEGĀ and UPPERBODYstrength and NECK strength. The front row and the locks should aim to have very strong necks, core muscles and must aim to become as POWERFUL as possible. Players 16 and older should aim to begin the power exercises found in the intermediate and advanced gym programmes. Power is vital for the initial hit as well as the second shove. Being powerful makes a huge difference in the contact points on the field enabling you dominate your opposition in the tackle, scrum, ruck and maul.

Below is a few drills that will help you train for the scrum. So find a partner, get on the field and do each one 2 to 5 times. If you want to do more then do so! It will only help your scrumming!
