THE Suva Rugby Union yesterday handed over scrum machines to nine affiliated clubs.

Union chairman Commander Francis Kean said most teams were weak in the scrums, an aspect of the game that had plagued Fiji teams for years.

He said the equipment would contribute towards the success of the teams.

"Suva is known for forward play and its scrums and there is a need for this kind of equipment among our affiliated clubs so that they can improve their scrums."

Commander Kean said the three scrum machines would be shared among nine clubs.

"One would be shared between Tovata, Waqansila and Nasinu.

"Harlequins, Covenant Brothers and National Fire Authority will share one and the last one will be shared between Tacirua, Savura and New Town."
