The Worlds largest scrum

16-Sep-2014


1,008 people from around the country took part in the world’s largest rugby scrum on Friday at Twickenham Stadium to mark the day that tickets go on public sale for Rugby World Cup 2015.

Among the participants, who beat the previous record of 946, were Rugby World Cup winners Piri Weepu, Lawrence Dallaglio and Will Greenwood, Wales head coach Warren Gatland, and other former and ex-players. There were also representatives from those across the country helping to plan and deliver Rugby World Cup 2015 including; England Rugby 2015 staff, host cities and venues, RFU, IRB, Rugby World Cup commercial partners and volunteers who have applied to be part of ‘The Pack’.  

Chief Executive of England Rugby 2015, Debbie Jevans, said: "This is a fantastic achievement and a fitting way to kick off the public sale of tickets to rugby's showcase event. This event brought together 1,008 people from organisations involved in Rugby World 2015 and I want to thank them all for their support. Everyone who took part is now a World Record Holder!

"Tickets are now on general sale at tickets.rugbyworldcup.com. Fans have until September 29, 2014 to apply, so there is no rush. With prices starting at £15 for adults and £7 for children, it's a great opportunity to watch world class rugby in venues across England and Cardiff.”

In order to be recognised as a new world record the scrum had to follow a number of rules:

· The scrum comprised players in three rows on either side in proportion to a normal rugby scrum (3:2:3 proportions for the front, second row and back row)

· The ball was successfully fed in from the side and hooked through the back of the scrum

· The scrum was officiated by IRB referee Wayne Barnes

· Organisers undertook a full risk assessment to ensure the safety of all participants
