When was our last group of props that were better than this group at scrummaging?
Our scrum has been stronger in the last couple of years than I can remember in the last 15+ years.
Nah BH. In the past couple of years, Sio has been carrying injuries, Slipper had quite a bit of time out of the game, Bell has mostly been weak at scrumming and Tupou only bores in and gets away with it with a couple of Aussie refs.
There are recent signs of improvement though. Sio looks to be back somewhere near full strength, Slipper has regained form with more games and is looking very steady at LHP, Bell is showing significant improvement in scrums but Tupou continues to earn the wrath of NH refs at scrum time.
We appear to be on an improving track atm, but I wouldn't call their efforts for some of the past couple of years as being particularly strong.
