Neck Protech is a proactive solution for reducing the risk of suffering a life changing neck injury on the rugby field. It is the ONLY solution in Australian rugby that focusses on prevention rather than reaction.

Neck Protech was created by professional rugby player Samuel Needs, founder of  Scrum Strong and author of Scrum Science: Forward Thinking, in conjunction with Sports Chiropractor Dr David Steven, Physiotherapist Sam Ward, and Strength & Conditioning coach Scott Hoare.

  • Time efficient

What’s included:

  • Over 40 pages of educational awareness around neck safety in rugby
  • 8 week training program for neck strength, including demonstration images
  • Accompanied with easy to follow video tutorials of every exercise
  • Easy to do with a logical progression of exercises that WILL improve the neck strength and resilience of all players

Neck Protech

After a significant number of spinal related rugby injuries in 2018, we asked ourselves the question – “how many more life changing spinal injuries need to occur before real action is taken?”

It’s not rocket science, it’s common sense. Rugby is a contact sport with almost all of the contacts involving the neck and shoulders, and yet, the neck is almost never trained. We don’t need to change the rules of the game, we need to change our approach to preparing for the demands of the game.

Neck training needs to be a priority of players, parents and coaches who are involved all levels of rugby, but with an emphasis on junior rugby.

Our aim is to have Neck Protech in every junior rugby club and school in Australia and beyond by the end of 2019.

From our experiences, we’ve seen that the best results happen when education and application are intertwined. Neck Protech is an educational resource suitable for all players, parents and coaches, with the proactive application to drastically reduce the risk the spinal injuries in rugby.

100% of the profits from Neck Protech will be donated to a Spinal Awareness Charity.
