How to master the line out throw
Around the Academy:

The hooker is usually the player who throws the ball in at the line out
Introduction

Accuracy and timing are the two key factors for a perfect line out throw.

Any player in the team can throw the ball into the line out, but usually it is the hooker who takes the responsibility.

There is plenty of pressure for the hooker to find his jumper every time.

A throw can be the difference between winning and losing a match.

Rain and mud can make the throw that bit more difficult.

But with good technique, along with excellent communication skills, you can find your target every time.
