    And remember what a free kick means - might be silly to most in this forum, but I've had 5 games in the last 3 weeks and the amount of 'the ref last week said ....' and basically allowing gain in ground for free kicks outside the 22 (at least they all seemed to remember who got the throw in!).

    Can only assume the number of free kicks in a game, that are actually kicked upfield, are so few that there's brain farts all over

    its a useful scrum replacement currently of course.

    After 20 + FK's with no creativity / chasers / half decent kicker some teams may disagree based on my games! I've started having a nap till the next breakdown, just after I've said 'no you can't go quick' for the umpteenth time as well

    That's when you find out that we waste our breath at PMBs!
    Be reasonable - do it my way.

    For the avoidance of doubt I was alluding to the use of a FK to reduce intimate face to face poximity during the pandemic.

    Persoanlly I think FKs are a total and utter waste of time generally speaking.

    Reduced maybe, achieving anything, not sure - but we have more rugby than we did a month or so ago so not crumbling, and think we're on the edge of scrum training etc returning so optimistic for next season.

    yeah - if the "cost" of rugby NOW is fewer scrums and more useless FKs then it will do.

    in the medium to longer tewrm FKs could do with a review as to a suitable "punishment" coas giving away a FK outside of an oppos 22m is hardly any different than giving up a scrum.
