    [QUOTE=didds;372773]And the FK gets taken as a scrum and we are bacvk to square one. Unless of course eventually becasue it happens to often you end up with a PK for deleiberate law breaking.
    /QUOTE]

    Presumably it could be declared as a FK which carries a scrum option for the first infringement but not subsequent infringements similar to the not straight into a lineout law.

    It could - and as i said in my post quoted/followed from

    but you had be pretty sure who is at fault for not setting up in 30 seconds if you are goig to start awarding PKs that in themselves became game changers...
    Was it blue just fraffing around? Or red standing slightly offset at blue's put in so blue have to move to get opimal/correct head spacing? Me and our hooker used to do this to oppo packs all the time in Germany (our LH didnt get it so we just told him to bind ojn the hooker and follow him and dont worry about it!) - really effed with their minds. Then youd remember the ones that really couldnt handle it and make sure next time you did it even more!

    if everyone is ready at 25 seconds then a fly gets in the hooker's eye and he stands up to cklear it away is that now a PK?

    You'd better be sure when you award that 79th minute PK in front of the sticks ...

    sounds like you would have deserved a 79th minute PK under the sticks !!

    If you don't like scrums then there are 13 and 7 player versions that don't really have scrums you can watch instead.

    For me endless scrums are preferable to kicking tennis.
