    Oh I wouldn’t in that situation, but that’s clear foul play and on my own its easier to blow for that and manage that, than a ‘no try’ with all those extra emotions too

    I don't think the offside laws at a scrum really consider this situation (collapsed scrum, no flankers to protect 9), which is presumably because playing on with a scrum-collapse is specifically prohibited in Law (19.25).
    With the scrum collapsed the winning 9 loses the protection of this clause (19.30a) "Takes up a position with both feet behind the ball and close to the scrum but not in the space between the flanker and the number eight"

    Give the position blue took - I think a call of "use-it or reset" would have been more appropriate than just expecting red to play-on.

    It's also hard to see the scrum properly with the position the ref. has taken, but it looks to me like the Red LH was not pushing straight and caused the collapse.
