    Another question from my boss

    When did the Hooker take over throwing into the line-out?

    #2


    My guess would be late 60s or early 70s.


    I remember the time when wingers would put the ball into the lineout. That left a defensive gap 10 yards back from the line out, that attacking scrum-half could pop the ball over the line-out for a chase etc.. Great fun....

      I would say it was in the mid70s.
      Computer games don't affect kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in darkened rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive music.

        Early to mid 70's I think. Anyone remember which was the first 'big' team to make the change?

                I seem to remember tiny Jacques Fouroux doing it too.(RIP - didn't he die recently?)

                  I remember that. I was told it was because the french were using 3 props in the FR, and none of them could throw for toffee.
