    Among his points are:

    • " the small but technically good prop has a chance again and may even start to dominate in what was becoming a contest for giants at the professional level."
    • " it means the hooker’s strike is back in the game. As a former hooker I’m delighted to see that. "
    • "the props I have spoken to have said that they have to push a lot more than they did under the old rules, but the pain in their necks and shoulders post-match is reduced."
    • " the different type of effort required from the front row is taking it out of their legs in a big way"
    • "The end product should be less stoppages for resets and a fairer, more interesting contest. That can only be good for the game."
    Think he read the blog on RedScareRugby ;)


      One thing I've noticed; props are getting emptied in the old-school way. It means players get tired, and gaps appear.

      You know - rugby.

      Sort the scrum and the rest follows. : D
