    it was done the natural way - exactly as a flanker currently binds to the lock, pushing on the prop, in the old days bound to the #8, pushing on a lock

    He could, easily enough bind through the lock's legs and grab the waistband (as a lock does to the prop) -- but that's not binding to the body either.


    The old Laws were ambiguous - they said that flankers must bind to a lock's body, but they ALSO said flankers could be in the third row, which wasn't really consistent with that. Perhaps the 2018 Laws decided to remove that ambiguity

    It's another interesting one - I'll add it to my annoying table of differences

    oh, well, this clears it up ...

    2018
    19.5 When both teams have 15 players, eight players from each team bind together in
    formation as outlined in the diagram.
    Each team must have two props and one hooker in
    the front row and two locks in the second row. Three back-row players from each team
    complete the scrum. Sanction: Penalty


    The diagram has the flankers alongside the locks.

    So that's as clear as it could be - flankers not allowed in the third row.

    Interesting. That would seem to indicate that the 8 can no longer switch between channel 1 2 and 3 then.

    Indeed ! I didn't even think of that.

    Just realised I started this in the RL section. Would one of the Mods be so kind as to move it?

    My emphasis.

    He would bind on the lock similarly to the way the #8 binds on the lock.
    Good thought TP.

    So clearly the flank CAN bind on a 2nd row and 3rd row positioning is legal.

    Though the bit about "must form as in the picture" then disallows it.

    Nothing like simplifying the laws eh?
