Our scrum is absolutely pants, end of, whilst you no longer need a pack driving the opposition backwards (though it would be nice) you need parity with the majority of the opposition teams.
Perhaps we should bring Martin Hynes in, sure he couldn't do any worse and you never know he may produce some improvement.

I guess that then depends if you see the scrum as a way of attacking from or a way of milking penalties, clearly it can be used as both. I think the latter is very much an old school outlook. I don't think the best team in the world use this tactic much or even the better teams in Europe.

Watched Tiggers getting stuffed yesterday, cheered me up no end!

But seeing Mako yellow carded for 'scrummaging offences' just made me despair for ever seeing properly reffed scrums - if a world-class prop like him gets sent off what hope the rest of them. His opposition was his England team mate Cole who I have also seen binned for his own 'scrummaging offences' in the past.

I know none of this helps us but just goes to show what a circus the RFU have made out of scrummaging.

Ajack - I just want our scrum to stop giving away penalties. Forget attack. Forget earning/winning penalties. Just stop giving the darn things away.

Is that so much to expect?

Re the graphic that showed our scrum to be the best in the premiership; the same graphic was shown during the Ospreys' telecast.

It showed our success percentage on our own ball to be 58% - placing us 20th in the tournament.

Can we all stop beating around the bush please.
Dorian should not continue in his position and will hamper and signings or appointments while he is still employed.

Our pack is very weak due to underperforming, technique and Iíll discipline.

What is his role and purpose.
Other clubs are giggling out loud about our forwards!

He has to be removed with immediate effect.
