Calling for scrum simplicity – SuperSport – Rugby
WELL SAID Mr GOLD
At this point in time, the scrum set piece is a problem the world over. The fact of the matter is that this facet of play has become a lottery. What I’m saying is neither controversial nor debatable – the scrum is a mess at the moment.
I believe that the root of the problem stems from the game’s administrators interfering with the engagement process and finding an issue where there wasn’t necessarily one. Owing to said interference, the set piece is no longer a fair contest, which is sad to see. I believe it’s time to stop pussyfooting around the issue and start calling it like it is.
