The consequence of a knock on/forward pass should not be a scrum, it should be a free kick

Post by international198 on Thu Feb 23, 2017 6:42 pm

First topic message reminder :

Scrums are boring to watch because they're always going down and the referee doesn't know who to penalise. It's important to keep the scrum as an option but also I think it would be better to have a quick tap from a knock on/forward pass or a kick so that the game doesn't come completely dependent on scrums.

TMO the scrum?….its already a dirge and that would just make it even more painful. The scrum has become the most over regulated part of the game, we need less regulation and to actually turn it into a real contest again by penalising the feed.

Did you actually read my post? If done correctly it would reduce the amount of time spent in scrums, for three reasons:
1) The TV producer will know that every scrum could go to TMO, so the cameras will be in the right position and they will cue up the replays immediately. Getting a decision would almost certainly take less time than it would take to reset the scrum
2) Because you get a definitive decision after the first scrum, the number of resets would drop almost completely
3) It's harder to con the ref. Once teams adapt to that, we might actually see them start to use the scrum to restart, rather than milk penalties. If the ref can call "use it" once the ball is clearly won, teams might even choose to go backwards rather than collapse.

Why not play the entire game and then TMO it all afterwards, then the score can be decided on, everyone's happy. thumbsup

I disagree with use of the TMO other than for scoring tries and foul play because unless we only use it for those parts of the game then eventually we will be in a situation where we TMO everything and the game - already under threat iMO regarding the refereeing of 'high' and 'dangerous' tackles - will become unplayable.

All you need to do now is take away the flankers and we have rugby league!
