Ospreys, Wales and Lions tight head prop Adam Jones, whose scrummaging performances have contributed so much to the success of the Wales side in winning back to back 6 Nations titles, has strongly endorsed Rhino’s products. Adam has used Rhino’s top of the range scrum machine, the Dictator, continuously with Ospreys, Wales and the Lions in recent years, and he is particularly a fan of our one man scrum machine, which he uses regularly for personal practice. He comments: "Live scrummaging practice is very difficult to stage, and even with a full eight on a scrum machine there is a limited number of scrum hits you would practice before a big game, mainly to fine tune timing. In terms of regular practice for scrummaging body positioning and technique I constantly use the Rhino one man machine to get into the right routines”. Adam also speaks highly of the Rhino Collision King which Wales in particular have used intensively in the last two years since it was introduced – “it has helped enormously in developing correct body posture and technique at the breakdown which is such important part of the modern game. I think the Welsh performance in this phase of the game, and in particular against England in March, speaks for itself". Rhino is proud to have the endorsement of one of the world’s leading props, and we wish Adam well for selection for what will hopefully be his second Lions tour in Australia shortly.
