Definitions for "SCRUM"
The Web Based tool for managing SCRUM helping project manager, team memebers and project owners to focus on their commitments.
A formation used to restart play after a minor infraction such as a knock-on or forward pass. Forwards on each side bind and the two groups come together, with the front rows interlocking to leave a tunnel between them. The scrum-half (#9) of the non-offending team feeds the ball into the tunnel midway between the front rows. The hookers attempt to get the ball back by ‘hooking' it with their feet, while the other players try to push or ‘drive' the opponent backwards. The scrum ends when the ball is out of the tunnel and in possession of a player on either team. As with a ruck, a player may not use his/her hands while the ball is in the scrum.
(rugby) the method of beginning play in which the forwards of each team crouch side by side with locked arms; play starts when the ball thrown in between them and the two sides compete for possession
The gathering of reporters around a person who is important to a particular story. When a scrum occurs, all the reporters shout questions to the person in an attempt to further their own story. This situation is much more informal then a Press Conference.
