    Then it's up to us to try ATP first and to give FKs if that fails ... and to escalate to PKs if necessary.

    Mind you, a pack would have to be pretty thick to get to the PK stage.

    i don't quite understand why this happens.

    the first match I had this season, after a few scrums the exasparated hooker turned on his back five and said 'look there's no point shoving on set - the ball isn't going to come in until the scrum has stopped moving, all you are doing is making it harder for me to be in position to hook'

    that made sense to me.

    Because the FR are starting closer together and must be balanced at crouch then for those less practiced their feet will be underneath them i.e. not the strong 120 degree angle. They need to adjust their feet on set. I've also noticed a tendency to bind early to prevent loss of balance.

    Having said that, I ref at a pretty low standard as a L13 ref, so maybe its just a skill thing !

    IMO It's not a 'material' problem if they do, they cant shove so let them, still take your time checking bindings etc & then when you're satisfied it's now Sq&Stable then Y9 & lets play some ruggar

    i'd like to hear an assessor's view of that (binding before you say bind)

    is it immaterial?
    or is it a warning sign that you are losing control of the engagement process.

    Or is it an unnecessary prescribed utterance? In the Glasgow v Leinster match it made bugger all difference.
