Hi,
England Scotland on Saturday and Ireland Wales France Italy on Sunday.
I'm not sure about the England Scotland match, Scotland have got much better of late, I am talking of years not just the last couple of seasons.

Scrums are now a ridiculous waste of time with the ball being blatently chucked to the scrum halfs hooker. What are they for? If its your scrum you cant lose. And, they ought to ban hoisting people up in the lineouts, its all become a joke.

Al (ex wing forward) anybody know what that was?
Touring on a bicycle is a great way to explore and appreciate the countryside and towns you pass through. What do you do to make a difference?

Not sure why but i guess the scum putin is to minimize strain and injuries?

I'd like to see feeding stopped too. I don't think that they are a waste of time though. And yes, I do know those blokes who used to hang off the sides of the scrum. Missed being one as I got coopted into the second row, and eventually into the front row.

Hi again, Well the scrum feed rules still say straight in central, so both hookers can have a chance to "Hook" it!
So if the feeling is that properly contested scrums are dangerous then action should be taken! After all if a team does not have a compliment of 3 specialist players in position then a scrum is declared "Un-Contested", usually happens due to injuries of carding.
Sometimes the scrum takes longer to get set fatigue must be setting in! Not a good practise. TTFN MM

That's why the front row earn the big(gest) bucks.
