We've a whole generation of players who wouldn't have a clue what to do in a contested scrum. It may well be difficult to re-introduce now.

Contested scrums? No thanks. Literally a waste of time.

Agreed but I meant contested scrums take too much time setting up, collapsing etc. etc.

I take your point. I really don't want to go back to the days of collapsing scrums. It's all hypothetical anyway, because it simply won't happen. The game is completely changed from when we had contested scrums .
I simply cannot stand the sham that is a present day 'scrum'

Without a scrum though where is there an advantage at the point of the offence/error. You just going to go straight for a kick to touch to gain field position?
What would a Cockney know about rugby league?

What about offences close to line would you restart on the 10 or 20?
