During the landing roll the aircraft started to veer right. The pilot under check applied sufficient rudder to correct the swing but then applied excessive left rudder and considerable power and the aircraft swung sharply left. The left wing and elevator tips contacted the ground whilst the instructor was regaining control. The pilot under check had not flown a tail wheel aircraft for five months.
