    :p wtf? Scrum penalty you can kick at goal from? A phasing in of rule changes? If both teams fail to turn up for the scrum then a penalty goes to one anyway & they can kick for goal!!!

    What about the time wasting refs that are obsessed with getting the players to pack scrums exactly how they want them packed and stand there yelling at the players to stand back and re-pack the scrum 3-4 times,

    The reduction of time allowed before a goal line drop out will help teams that have forced the line drop-out, and it will hinder teams that are based on a brick wall defence to defend repeat sets - such as us.

    Therefore we'd better practice getting a few more drop-outs ourselves, because the change will make defence even harder.

    Why don't they just stop the clock for kicks at goal instead? They waste more time than anything else.

    They should also slow teams to take an immediate drop out and if any players are off side they must retreat to the in goal before getting involved in the play.

    The scrum one will result in players feigning injury, as in union. What's the problem at the moment. I don't detect a groundswell of noise demanding these ridiculous changes. Christ I detest these idiots who demand change for changes sake.

    DSM5 is 100% correct. Players who are good actors will become more valuable.

    About time. ****s me to tears when one side is trying to take an advantage and the other are ball and chaining it. Get the stick out.

    I actually dont mind it for viewing purposes. Lets be honest, without fa'aso, king and gnulovao our team is relativly small and mobile so should be able to handle this.

    All this aside a quick game is a good game :)

    Could potentially make captains complain even more to the ref's to get them to blow time off to give players extra time to get to the scrums/rest.
