    what happening - sorry?

    the placing of heads (top of skull) onto oppo shoulders? yes - for ages at the elite level.

    At the community level? No.

    Refs stopping this practice - no. cos at community I don't see it, and i don't see a lot of elite level stuff

    I assume the hooker putting his/her head on the oppos shoulder is the more at risk?

    The position of FR heads certainly occurs in the Community game, as they copy TV rugby; but I am almost certain that they do not know why the 'elite' do it. More a case of having something to lean against?
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    "a hooker will not be allowed to lean and “deload” the weight of the entire forwards onto the shoulder of the opposition hooker at the “BIND” call from the referee."

    So the idea is that it hurts the oppo shoulder more than it hurts your head ?
