Scrum halves feinting

Sorry if we've already done this but I can't do a forum search for some reason.

I'm seeing more and more frequently a quick movement of the head from scrum halves prior to feeding from the scrum/ruck/maul.

At one time this was commonplace but as far as I am aware it has been illegal for many years.

It seems to have started again this season but I've never seen anyone sanctioned for it.

Any thoughts?

I thought it was made illegal at the scrum, but pk at ruck and maul. But they keep changing the Laws so I could be mistaken.

I was being lazy.

Here are the laws...

Maul - 16:11:c Take any action to make opponents believe that the maul has ended when it has not. Sanction: Free-kick.

Ruck - 15:15:g Take any action to make opponents believe that the ruck has ended when it has not.

Scrum - 19:38:f Scrum-half attempting to make an opponent believe the ball is out of the scrum when it is not.
