McCarthy Hosts Scrum Workshop For Cork Coaches

Munster scrum coach Paul McCarthy recently presented a scrum workshop at Sunday’s Well RFC, with head coaches from all Cork clubs invited and over 40 of them in attendance.

The workshop was coordinated by Munster’s Domestic Rugby Manager Ultan O’Callaghan and Coach Development Officer Keith Murphy. It began with a 25-minute presentation indoors followed by a practical element on the pitch.

The theme for the evening was ‘building a scrum’ where Paul McCarthy utilised the Cork Constitution and Dolphin Under-21 packs to demonstrate warm-up techniques, core and head stability, body positioning, building a front row and full engagement sequence.

Munster Rugby would like to take this opportunity to thank Sunday’s Well RFC for providing the facilities, the Cork Con and Dolphin U-21s for participating in the workshop and Paul for all his input.

Further scrum workshops with Paul were held in the past fortnight at Garryowen FC and in Tralee and Clonmel, with all club coaches have been invited to attend.

Munster Rugby will run continuation scrum workshops identifying different themes in the New Year.
