Imagine if common sense and the laws of rugby ever met, well maybe they have

Using the Laws of physics (stick with me, it's not as boring or complicated as it sounds) 3 former Lions and the IRB medical advisor have got a plan for scrums (about time some1 did)

It all seems very sensible right up until they start talking about changing scrum penalty to an unconvertable penalty kick – that would destroy the art of scrummaging, as poor scrummaging teams could just give wilfully infringe knowing that the worst thing they can give up is some field position.

I still think that if the scrummaging laws, as they stand, were actually applied by referees, then many of the problems with scrums would be alleviated.

The "uncovertable kick" thing just seems to be a way of making the ref's even more confused than they already are, Flatman reckons that if they take the "pause" and therefore the massive collision (that they were trying to stop in the first place iirc) then fewer scrums would be "incomplete" & he's been the best loose head I've seen in the Aviva this season, so I believe him.

I think Brian Moore made a similar point in his little thesis last week – there shouldn't be a collision at the scrums, they should engage, then push, not push and engage at the same time…
