Hello, I'm Peter Bracken
I am a former Ireland International and Barbarians representative.
I was a professional rugby player playing Tighthead Prop for Munster, Connacht, Wasps, Bristol, Harlequins, Newport Gwent Dragons, and l’USC Carcassonne.
I’m now working as a Professional Rugby Scrum Coach and an IRFU Elite Scrum Coach and I am a 6 nations grand slam winning scrum coach to the Ireland women’s team 2013 and Women’s world cup 4th place 2014.
I’ve learned my scrum knowledge from playing in the front row at the highest level and being coached by some of the best scrum coaches in world rugby. I’m collaborating and knowledge sharing with the best rugby scrum coaches in the world on a regular basis.
Now I provide world class scrum coaching and scrum analysis to rugby teams of all level – professional to amateur. Worldwide.
Rugby Scrum CoachWorld class, expert rugby scrum coaching and analysis to all teams at all levels.
I have 10 years experience as a professional rugby player with Wasps, Harlequins, Bristol Rugby, Connacht and Munster.
I am known throughout the rugby world as an expert technical scrummager, which I have proven on the field of play throughout my playing career.
I am very familiar with the latest scrum techniques and tactics and I am always keeping abreast of further developments in scrummaging to enhance my skills further.
Safety is my main concern when teaching as the most effective way to scrummage is also the safest. I am First Aid certified.
I believes the scrum is of vital importance in modern rugby, and it can be used as both an attacking and defensive weapon. It is also a powerful force to exert physical dominance on an opposition pack of forwards and team. It is the easiest and most effective platform to play off in the modern game.
This is why a strong scrum is a necessity to any successful and winning team. It is often said that “Forwards win matches, backs decide by how much!” It is widely accepted that a strong dominant scrum gives your forwards a confidence advantage, equally, a weak scrum weakens confidence.
I believes scrummaging is a state of mind and that good technique is more important and effective than brute strength alone. Also, that 8-man scrummaging, superior body position, timing, speed and technique are the basis of a good scrum.
I have the most up-to-date techniques and drills to optimise your teams’ effectiveness at scrum time.
