    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    Don't forget thathis approach implies little or no consideration for his OWN players' welfare! When a scrum collapses ANY forward(s) from either or both teams could be the one(S) that break(s)s...

    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    I think by saying: "Guys I don't think you're safe scrummaging. We will go to an U19 push" might be leaving the door open for an action against you later.

    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    In senior rugby, I would say no. However, you can play a match with U19 scrum laws: IF the relevant Union has sanctioned it (Law 19.39). That apart it is full law (with uncontested being avaiable...

    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    Not me.

    I'd apply the same logic as we are, by the Welsh Rugby Union, told to regarding general terms about starting the match:

    REF says playable either side says no. Game does not start.

    [Scrum] Re: Uncontested scrums

    A refere may order uncontested scrums at any time. He call is not open to discussion. "Referee is sole judge of fact" and all that.

    Law justification?

    Caveat: Ignore intent etc:


    Tackler makes contact with the neck / head = PENALTY KICK and possible card.
