As a coach:
Andrew “Tank” Lanning is currently the Bishops scrum mentor across both the Prep and College, a position that sees him powering up the basics for the U9’s, while also taking charge of the 1st XV forwards. This after spending five years at UCT as their 1st XV and club scrum coach, which included making the final of the Varsity Cup, and winning the World University cup.
Tank sees the scrum as a weapon, one that is not driven by just the three big guys up front, instead by all 8 forwards. Technique, strength and power are key, but it’s the timing that makes a scrum dominant.
Having started the Tank Lanning Scrum School, Tank is available for both individual and team coaching sessions.
