Moenie K#k praat ou windpomp - asselbief ek vra vir jounog n tyd!!! The tighthead if often a bit shorter than the loosehead.
Ag jou donnerse eier. Try again.
"There really isn't too big an issue here if you are talking about an inch or two but generally the taller prop is the tight head. The Scrum needs to lead in from the tight head side so being taller helps that. The tight heads job is to stay steady and low anchoring the scrum while the loose head wants to drive the opposition tighthead up so his hooker has a bigger hole to work in. This all reversed while in a defensive scrum."
"The tight-head is stronger, a better scrummager and likely to be the bigger of the two props. He is the cornerstone of the front row and the scrum. He must take pride in this role first and foremost, and be prepared to confront the opposition.
The tight-head should be the more technical player, especially since he is up against two players, not one."
Verstaan jy nou?
