    If I can stop laughing at the intro I'll listen to it later.

    I had a listen and was fascinated, as I had rarely considered how much goes into training for scrums (coming from my code, I'm sure this isn't surprising!). Particularly liked the point you made repeatedly that you really don't know the shape / size / type of player a 10-12 year old is going to turn into

    Enjoyed the listen. Agreed with much of what was said (at least what you said, didds). Also agree that scrums need to stay as part of the game if for no other reason than to employ those less fleet of foot and to create the variable shapes of the game.

    I'd like to see more small sides on smaller pitches. Until age 16 ten-a-side on a half pitch would create a better experience.

    To be fair to Dan, the questions are asked in a manner to create debate rather than sycophancy :-)

    he might be along here soon - you never know!

    In England Boys play 15 a side full pitch at u14, 13 a side 90x60m at u13, 10 a side half pitch at u12.
    I am sure our Antipodean cousins will say that is too much cotton wool.

    Girls play 10 a side at u13, 13 a side until 15 and 15 a side thereafter - if they have the numbers.

    So not quite as restricted as you suggest.

    I tend to agree that there is little to be gained playing on a full pitch and everyone else watching the winger repeatedly sprint 40m to the line,

    No, I said 10 a side. Point being that players get more touches on the ball with less players and still plenty of contact.
