Re: Flying in to rucks dangerously

all of these problems stem from the decision to outlaw what was previously known as rucking, i.e. driving over the ball, bound on to an opposition player, and playing the ball back with your feet and, if necessary, moving an opposition player lying on the wrong side with your feet.

So to cut down on a few stud marks on offending players' backs, presumably to make the game look less scary to newcomers and parents, the powers that be have created an absolute mess, which is impossible to read, hard for supporters to understand, and results in concussions, knee and ligament damage, dislocated hips, neck rolls, more congested midfields leading to bigger and more numerous collisions, etc. None o the laws are enforced properly and it could all be resolved by allowing proper rucking. Not stamping, just proper rucking. Sadly it won't happen, they'll just tweak or change the current laws every few years leading to another set of unintended consequences
