This rugby clash really was one titanic battle – as players lined up for the world’s largest ever SCRUM.

Nice try: Players team up for world's largest rugby scrum

An amazing 191 players crammed into the strength-sapping set-piece, binding with their team mates, then heaving against the opposition.

Together – even using a giant rugby ball – they smashed the previous Guinness World Record of 68 players in a scrum.

The charity event was organised to raise cash for Breakthrough Breast Cancer, at the BASC Ground in Burnham-on-Sea, Somerset.

Organiser Christine Piper said they were “thrilled” to kick the old record into touch.

She said: “We had an absolutely fantastic turnout and are so pleased to have broken the record.

“The previous record was 68. Although a team from Leicester recently attempted to break it, we understand their 162 person scrum did not follow strict guidelines.

“In any case, we’ll have beaten them too!”
