Like the prop forwards, the second rows get stuck in at the deep end.

Making tackles and breaking down the opposition's defence are two things every second rower loves doing.

On top of that, they are also an important part of the scrum, providing the power behind the front row.

As always, a good pair of hands and a good engine are required to be a quality second row.
