Pic: Cian Healy explains Leinster's scrum dominance as only Cian Healy can

Yesterday, we tried our hand at explaining why Leinster gave Bath a right pasting at the scrum on Saturday.

It was the bones of 1,400 words, and was filled with screengrabs, arrows, circles and took a fine bit of time and effort to put together.

However, Leinster's Cian Healy, who absolutely tormented Bath's third choice tight-head Kane Palma Newport, found a much more concise way of explaining why his side were so dominant at the setpiece on Saturday. It's all about physics, you see.

Instagraming a shot of Palma Newport being lifted into the air by his second row Dave Attwood, Healy quoted a definition of what "pressure" is from Wikipedia, and it certainly paints the picture.

Palma Newport had been going backwards all afternoon, and eventually, his second row decided that rather than go back, it was best to go up.

Leinster won five penalties from the game's 13 scrums on Saturday, three of which were kicked for points, with half of the 18 point haul coming directly from their scrum.
