    That's fine until there are uncontested scrums when you are back to 8 v 8!

    So , as noted in the quick tap thread - another UNHIGHLIGHTED change smuggled into the 2019 book .. a significant change to wording of 10.4.c , which requires all players offside in general play to RETIRE until put onside by a team mate

    10.4.c is the 10m rule (for kicks) - that always required a player to retire to an imaginary line across the field 10 meters from where the ball lands.

    Historical footnote: many years ago (probably the 60s) it was legal to run towards an opponent waiting for a kick as long as you stopped 10 yards away.

    See with the reduction of numbers in the scrum - would this not only apply if there were 7 forwards on the field? EG Red gets yellow/red card to Flanker. Blue has to reduce the number in the scrum too. Red gets yellow/red card to back, scrums stay 8 v 8 as there is no imbalance in numbers for scrums.???

    That's how it was (mostly ) reffed up until last week.
    The 2019 change is that in both cases the scrum goes down to 7

    .. unless it's uncontested in which case in both cases it's eight again

    Whats the logic behind this ? Why cause disruption to the scrum because a back has been YC ?
    Courage is knowing what lies on the other side and still opening the door !

    I suspect the logic is to deny the team with 14 the decision on whether the play with seven or eight in the scrum (which they sort of could do by making substitution to take off or bring on a forward
