Former England hooker Brian Moore believes there is worse to come despite Rob Andrew's claim that English rugby has hit "rock bottom."



I should point out to people unfamiliar with rugby that the hooker isthe player who tries to get the ball out of the scrum.

Scrum (an abbreviated form of scrummage, which is now rarely used, except as a verb), in the sports of rugby union and rugby league, is a way of restarting the game, either after an accidental infringement or (in rugby league only) when the ball has gone out of play. Scrums occur more often, and are of greater importance, in union than in league.

In both sports, a scrum is formed by the players who are designated forwards binding together in three rows. The scrum then 'engages' with the opposition team so that the player's heads are interlocked with those of the other side's front row. The scrum-half from the team that did not infringe then throws the ball into the tunnel created in the space between the two sets of front rowers' legs. Both teams may then try to compete for the ball by trying to hook the ball backwards with their feet.

These Americans have o idea how to play real sports, you see they are too busy watching the cheerleaders and eating hot dogs and drinking beer to watch the game!

real football is played with your feet and does not stop every couple of seconds to talk about it, and in rugby you should not be able to tell one team from the other come half time by the color of the jerseys, instead they are all mud brown!
