Surely Argentina must be having their best results ever?SFBB wrote: ↑Wed Nov 25, 2020 7:21 am Only two teams in Test rugby are currently at the peak of their squads ability - SA and England, and of those two only England are currently brave enough to play, but have no desire to provide entertainment.
Everybody else is at some stage of falling down and getting back up, which means you get games of very questionable standard for what was reliable Test match rugby.
FWIW, I love scrums, and I think the only way to make rugby better is to focus on reffing them as brutally as possible. No more fast guys who can barely hold their side of the scrum up, and rely on cheating to get away with inability. We've accepted the "dark arts" as part of rugby for too long. If you cheat to survive against a better scrummager, and then get advantage around the field, you should be banned from scrummaging in X amount of subsequent games. I don't care if teams have to pick 160kg fatplums out of suburban 2nd grade to hold up his side of the scrum legally.
They must be at the peak of their ability?
