INTRODUCING

IRONBACK

The role of a scrummager has evolved rapidly over the last two decades of professional rugby. Athletes are faster, strong & fitter than ever before and training to be a top athlete has become incredibly specialised.

Ironback creates machines that are a combination of the tried and true scrum training techniques, coupled with innovative technology. Our machines ensure scrummagers have access to equipment and online content that allows them hone their skills to a world-leading standard. Ironback machines are now used by many of the world’s top teams, coaches & athletes.

OUR STORY

THE MACHINEs

We identified where traditional scrum training machines fell short of optimising an athlete’s training and resolved these issues.

Whether it is young players looking to learn technique, athletes on the path to rehabilitation or professional players seeking to hone their skills, our machines are suitable for athletes of all levels.

TESTIMONIALS

"By far the best investment this year.
What excites me is that Ironback offers the whole package to do with scrummaging and set-piece. A good set piece is crucial to the expansive game we all like to play so if you are a player, coach, amateur or professional team, Ironback can help with specific requirements for this area."

"It's great for getting my younger boys up to scratch in the front row.
I get to test their skills one on one which is really great from a safety sense. Especially before sticking them in the scrum with 15 other lads."
