AHEAD of the RBS 6 Nations, cornerstone of the Welsh rugby team Adam Jones, accompanied by front-row teammates Paul James and Ken Owens, star in a new short film shot from within the scrum.

The never-seen-before footage features the players’ perspectives that fans rarely have the chance to see when watching from the stands including the extreme pressures placed upon the scrummagers’ upper bodies and even their faces.

The film highlights the build up to a match from locker room to pitch, with a focus on the physical intensity and brutality players endure within a scrum. After the ferocious interlocking commences, players’ faces are shown experiencing the strain, pressure, stress, sweat and mud all contributing to what has been labeled, Face Torture – the damage that men’s faces are dealing with in their everyday lives, but don’t know about.
