Top scrum half coaching video by David Clarke

Here is an excellent coaching video from Nigel Melville, the former England scrum half and Director of Rugby in the US, on the scrum half pass. [Unfortunately this video is now unavailable. I will repost it when it does]

Lots of good coaching points and methods of instruction. As it happens I have been using many of these in the last few weeks with some of the scrum halves I coach and the improvement has been quite noticeable.

[Here are some of the ideas from the video, which is not available currently:

1. One hand passing

2. One hand passing from the ground

3. Following the dominant hand towards the target

4. Body movement should be towards target]

Do any DVD’s exist specifically about scrum half play?
