Scrums

Post by prattenparkchild » Wed 12 Dec, 2018 6:40 pm

Have to say I really think it was a backward step giving in to the infringements in feeding the scrum. Just been watching some rugby and really miss the good scrum. When the hooker could actually get the ball against the feed was a great fillip for a team on the defensive, now it's all gone.

Agree

But it's just one of many things wrong with the game

The bit that gets me is that the league gave in to coaches who directed their halfbacks to put the ball in to the 2nd row. Should never have given in, fine the clubs, sanction the coaches, penalise and sanction the halfbacks.

That's the problem with the NRL though

They give in to pressure

The likes of uncle nick and news limited run the game

Have done for over 20yrs

Todd Greenberg is useless

Or maybe a Leichhardt scrum may jolt a few more memories:
