London Irish use world’s first vending machine scrum

The world’s first scrum vending machine accepts payments in power, with the reward coming in the form of Etixx nutrition bars.

Etixx have a three year deal with the club, so have created a vending machine with a scrum machine attached which measures the power at which they impact the pads, with nutrition bars being dispensed if the meter is topped.
