Abstract

The aim of this paper is to present the “Biomechanics of the Rugby Scrum” project, a three-year research programme that thoroughly studied the kinematics and kinetics of rugby union scrummaging with a view to identifying safer scrum engagement techniques. The outcomes of the study will be analysed and their implications for injury prevention and performance will be discussed.
