I'm sure that this came in when they increased the no of subs from 7 to 8, and insisted on 3 front row subs rather than just 2.

I seem to remember that before this change, there were a significant number of matches going to uncontested scrums, and that there were accusations of teams faking injuries to protect a weaker scrum.
