    Where's "there"? - Front Row, I think we are fairly united on that not being a good idea - and depending on which arm he may have difficulty at lock or flanker - depending on which side he tries to play. But elsewhere, - probably OK.

    When I played, we used to play against a team with a hooker with one arm and a little rudimentary flipper. His good arm was MASSIVE!

    He scrummaged with no issues as far as I know (or cared at the time) I couldn't see - I was preparing to cut, rapier like, through the opposition backline.

    Most supporters only have " one eye" and we don't stop them! But seriousely, should we not do all we can to help, even talk to the opo prop and maybe do a few practice scrums before the game to see if it works! To just dismiss IMO is wrong!

    Norfolk, you didn't say why the scrums collapsed. Are you saying that it's because of lack of binding?

    It wasn't that long ago (or was it?) that either prop could elect not to bind on the ops. I didn't see that it was a problem then and today I'd let him play. I like Wombles approach, talk to the other prop, make sure he can get a good bind and both have good body position.

    Yes, but...

    20.6.c in the old book applied only to LHP - saying he must either bind on ihs opponent, OR place his left hand or forearm on his own left thigh. The THP was required to bind on the jersey (not sleeve or arm) of the LHP opposite.

    The LHP was this supported either by binding his opponent, or by his own left thigh.

    Sorry - meant to say that the LHP's ability to use his own left thigh as support disappeared in 2001, when the sentence about using the thigh was removed.
