Re: New scrum laws

I like the new scrum laws. I think well see weaker scrummaging teams able to hook and pick up and play on. And we'll see a lot less playing for penalties.

I dont think the contest is gone, but it is correctly skewed to the putting in side. Of course that depends on whether the refs hold 9's to the straight put in going forward. I do fear they will not, even though that wold be one of the easiest aspects of the game for them to judge.
