    The underlying problem is that Crusaders (mistakenly) think they are the best rugby club on the planet.

    Could we have one of those experimental season where the referees actually applied the laws and see what happens.
    Then decide which simply need to be rewritten or just discarded.

    Did you actually WATCH the video?

    In the very first minute, its the INTERVIEWER who makes that claim.

    And the Crusaders are not a rugby club, they are a regional franchise who represent about 100 rugby clubs

    Oh good. We don't want to allow any action to mislead opponents... so lets make the midfeild dummy pass illegal.

    Lets remove all the stuff that makes the game exciting and unpredictable; stop all the things that allow for some individuality and innovation in the game. Lets have boring set piece to set piece rugger, just like the good old days!

    And with that, I'm out

    As far as I see the following laws are being ignored. 18.16, 18.17a, 18.20,18.29d,18.38.
    Which of these , if any, should we remove from the law book? Can we replace them by something else?

    There is a difference between removing LEGAL deceptions from the game and, MATERIAL, ILLEGAL plays.

    Fair point but I believe that we (all?) understand what happens dynamically in such scenarios because it is quite a common occurrence now. It is one of those scenarios that seems to be becoming the accepted norm even if it is against the written laws.

    It's worrying that we are heading into the RWC with quite a few of those

    They can't peel until the ball leaves the hand and must keep moving until the line out has ended. Can't say there could even be any expectation that they are to be thrown or passed the ball. They are there purely to participate in the resulting maul.
