Description

We want to help Pontefract RUFC U14s put some science into their scrum by buying a junior scrum machine. Scrum machines safely introduce the players to the mechanics of the rugby scrum. They build player confidence, help improve strength and skill, and increase pushing power. When players use the machine, coaches can observe and teach the correct body positioning which means technique is improved and injuries can be avoided. Rugby is a hard, physical game - especially for youth players whose bodies are still developing - so we want to do all we can to help keep our players safe and injury free whilst they're learning the ropes.

Pontefract Rugby Union Club Under 14s

Pontefract RUFC U14s are a fantastic bunch of boys who absolutely love the game. The team spirit is amazing and they support each other whether they win, lose or draw. As the coaches play for the first team at the club, they are an inspiration to the boys and show what's possible with hard work.
