no they dont as they have already broken and on the way back before the tackle if even attempted, just a restart now as the scrums just break as they are uncontested


Of course they have to sprint back,otherwise they are not going to be onside. If a team gets known for breaking early then a smart player will just trap the ball in the 2nd row and take the resulting penalty,i remember Wigan doing just to to us ( saints ) about 3 times in one game as O'loughlin called it.

every team breaks early, the ref even calls it now for them, you dont have to sprint back watch them, its a jog, thats why you wrestle in the tackle to ensure everyone gets back onside...plus a lot of the time its not even the pack who go into the scrum

I've probably watched/been involved with over 1,000 games. I have yet to see a prop sprint after a scrum.

Most idiotic post ever goes to Grimmy..... The way to restart should be an arm wrestle between a designated player from each side.

Because some players REFUSING there jabs


If any player is forced to isolate as a contact because they have refused their jab, they should only receive the £93 a week SSP. Perhaps this will "encourage" them to get jabbed.

I doubt the knuckledraggers know what chemicals are in the ink that regularly gets inserted into them with their latest tattoo....
