I'm not trying to get into cross-code trouble here but I think it's relevant. I went to Northampton v Gloucester last night with a friend who supports the home side. The scrums often had to be re-set and almost always ended in a penalty. It was a dire aspect for me. If our scrums headed back in this direction it would be an awful move. I'm telling you things you all already knew I guess, but I thought i'd throw it in. He's coming to a Hull KR game next season.
That is or has been a cross code subject, but I think that it is very relevant here. Any change to our rules, or interpretation of the rules, to make scrums competitive, will take us back to the type of situation they have in Union, where the point of a scrum is to win a penalty, and not to get on with the game.
Will watch it later, but looks like 2 cracking teams. Full house as well by the look of it. It will be interesting to see what the scrums are like given the thread about scrums at the moment. Thanks for posting it.
Unbelievable. Scrums in League are a method of restarting the game. Nothing more. Why people want to go back to shoving, pushing, resetting, penalties for 'foot up', 'not binding' and 'feeeeeeding' is beyond me. They are fine as they are. Just get on with the game.
This thread is unbelievable. We have just beaten the World Champions. They were missing key players. So were we. But we won. What more do some people on here want. Maybe we should just play France every time. I was at Wigan and in awful conditions the team played superb rugby. Why can't people just get behind them, say well done guys and bring on the four nations next year? Imagine what would happen if the rah rahs beat The All Blacks.
It is truly The Greatest Game. We all know it. It's been a huge part of my life. I hope we can sell out three Test matches against NZ next month. For my part, I'm travelling from Gran Canaria for the third test. I hope we have won the series by then, but if it's a decider, that's fine by me.
Well I think it has been a great concept. It has given 4 championship sides the chance of promotion. Just because it hasn't happened this year doesn't mean it will never happen. I think I'm right in saying that for quite a few years, the Grand final was contested by the top two teams. Then, Leeds had the temerity to win it from fifth place. Even that got criticised by some on here.
I missed most of the first half. Within the first 2 minutes of the second half, Stevo had said 'stanza', 'utilise', 'outfit' and 'offload'. He has to go. I find him tiresome, boring, loud and far too opinionated, as well as a stereotype. There must be someone far better.
