Belfast schoolchildren break world record for largest scrum

Eight hundred and forty Belfast schoolchildren break the record for the world's largest scrum at Ravenhill, ahead of the PRO12 match between Ulster and Aironi, breaking the previous unofficial record of 750 set last year.

Chris McCarey, organiser and head of rugby at Belfast Royal Academy, says he wanted the pupils to take part in "something special" to raise money for their school tour of South Africa this summer.
