How the Rest of the Team See the Props

The position of prop suffers from much derision despite being a cornerstone of any teams performance. In honour of this fact we have decided to take a slightly satirical look at how the rest of the team views their slightly rotund brothers in arms. Here’s how the rest of the team view props.

How the Second Row See Props

canonFor the second row, props are nothing more than a large object to pummel the opposition scrum with. A human wrecking ball they can launch at another front row in the hope of bowling through them like a ball through skittles.

  1. Ex-Tighthead and this is spot on. The truth is that props represent the intelligensia of a team, are tireless in their selfless work to secure ball and provide the rest of the team, including ‘the girls’, with countless opportunities to provide the opposition with free ball in order to start the whole process over again. Oh and we are invariably the centre of fun and can outdrink the rest of the team. Not at all biased you understand!
