Sam Warburton on the perfect way to clean out a jackler

If anyone wants any advice on the breakdown, there aren’t many better people to ask than former Wales and British & Irish Lions captain Sam Warburton.

Fortunately for everyone, the former openside flanker has recently provided a tutorial on how to clean out a player at the breakdown. This comes after the crocodile roll was thrust back into the centre of attention at the weekend after Sale Sharks’ Akker van der Merwe picked up a nasty looking injury after being rolled against London Irish.

The 34-year-old referred to the croc roll as the “lazy way” to clean out a jackler at the ruck, before giving the textbook guide to safely remove a player from a ruck.

The video was shared by¬†therugbytrainer¬†on social media, and it is perhaps telling that England and Leicester Tigers hooker Nic Dolly commented on the post with the statement “ban it.” The hooker is currently out with a long term knee injury sustained after being crocodile rolled at a ruck in May.

Take a look at the video:
