Seems Porter gets the brunt of the criticism for the scrum woes on OTB, with the idea that Furlong would improve things drastically. I dunno. I amn't an expert, but it seemed a lot of the problems were on Healy's side. Koch was boring in on Porter, making the scrum unstable. It may have gone down o...
