Using the maul in open play

All Blacks Coach Graham Henry talks about using the maul in open play and off lineouts to create attacking opportunities ... its a real interesting video with some graphic overlays and such. There's a distinction of a "thin" attacking maul, where the maul really resembles an arrow, and is used to penetrate, and the "rolling" maul, used to create overloads and suck in defenders.

Good stuff.
