Du Plessis said : “They are the team that scrums the longest per scrum. I’ve measured it‚” “They scrum three-and-a half to four seconds longer than other teams. It means they are really patient. They keep squeezing. They are not explosive‚ and then fade. That is a good weapon to have because any team that stays in the fight like that is doing something right. It will be a huge challenge for us” External link

Du Plessis pointed out : “We can’t even make a little circle to discuss scrum rhythm on a Monday because Covid tests are done on a Monday evening‚” “You need to test negative as close to the game as possible. Our training regime has been turned upside down. You simply can’t train the way you used to. I think that’s why having established combinations‚ as is the case with WP‚ will count in your favour. They know what works for them and they know what to do when they prepare. You can’t do 500 scrums on a Wednesday and think you are going to scrum properly on a Saturday” External link

And to have it go so horribly wrong right at the start; losing three big players to injury – you just go ‘man, how is this fair?’ Unfortunately those are the cards you get dealt.

Du Plessis said : “They are the team that scrums the longest per scrum. I’ve measured it‚” “They scrum three-and-a half to four seconds longer than other teams. It means they are really patient. They keep squeezing. They are not explosive‚ and then fade. That is a good weapon to have because any team that stays in the fight like that is doing something right. It will be a huge challenge for us” External link

And to have it go so horribly wrong right at the start; losing three big players to injury – you just go ‘man, how is this fair?’ Unfortunately those are the cards you get dealt.
