The San Diego Legion digs their cleats in with Australia’s Scrum Strong to become the official stud provider for Legion Rugby

The San Diego Legion has partnered with Australia’s Scrum Strong® to become the team’s official supplier of scrum studs.

Founded by professional rugby player Sam Needs in 2018, Scrum Strong has managed to fill a gaping hole in the world of scrummaging with their state of the art cleat and boot studs. Scrum Strong’s studs are designed to provide coaches and players with the tools to improve safety and maximize performance at scrum time.

“Our team at Scrum Strong is proud to partner with Major League Rugby powerhouse San Diego Legion,” said Scrum Strong’s Sam Needs. “We are excited to be the official supplier of their scrum studs, enabling them to dominate the scrum in any conditions.”

“I pride myself and our forwards pack here at the San Diego legion when it comes to the scrum on attention to detail and that’s no different when it comes to the equipment we use,” said San Diego Legion Scrum Coach Alex Corbisero. “They are by far the best studs available for scrummaging on the market, they have multiple types of thread for the different boots so our whole pack is wearing them and we’ve noticed a difference in our ability to keep our feet in the deck on all surfaces, especially in training where we’ve been dealing with record rainfall this year.”

Scrum Strong’s aluminum studs are available in sizes ranging from 11mm to 21 mm. More information on the San Diego Legion can be found at and for more information on Scrum Strong and to stay up to date on their latest product releases, please visit .
