All the specialist positions have their core skills, and everything else is secondary. As with a scrum-half and his passing, an out-half (usually) with his goal-kicking and game management, a hooker and his darts etc, so it is that the fundamental part of a prop’s game is his scrummaging. The game changes but some things stay the same.
Hence, Cian Healy and Tadhg Furlong will be men on a specific mission tomorrow, for the second test offers an opportunity to put to rights last week’s difficult day at the scrum coalface. “Yeah, it’s another chance to have a shot at them,” says Healy.
