NRL and other Australian Rugby League Discussion

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.
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.
Yeah scrum penalties...they were so awesome.
