Dear Rugby Coach,                            

When the South African team mauled halfway down the field against the Lions, many felt the shockwaves, not least the Lions themselves. They seemed totally unprepared to deal with this driving force. So, is a good maul just too difficult to stop?

Not according to coaches like Jim Love [rapport on The Guardian]. The maul has been around for many years and is still in evidence right through the game. At a recent schools final at Twickenham, one of the teams similarly used a well-drilled maul to shatter the opponents.

The Lions forward coach Warren Gatland (who has a few set piece problems to work on as well) and defence coach Shaun Edwards have some thinking to do. A more cynical person might say that Edwards never had to face a maul during his playing career, so he might struggle to understand the mechanics.

Here are some thoughts anyway Shaun, with my compliments.

Yours in rugby,

Ricardo Rodriguez, Editor
