Scrum changes to be trialed in Pacific Rugby Cup

Updated 26 February 2013, 9:29 AEDT

The Fijian and Samoan A teams are to take part in a trial that could change one of the fundamental parts of any rugby union game, the scrum.

The International Rugby Board wants to test out a new style of player engagement, which the board says is aimed at promoting the best-possible player welfare standards.

The trial will take place during this year's Pacific Rugby Cup, which will also involved Junior Japan, and development teams from the Australian and NZ Super 15 franchises.

Presenter:Richard Ewart
