Not sure if a serious proposal or just sports journalist trying to justify getting paid while nothing is happening.

Rugby: World Rugby considering dropping scrums, mauls to hasten return

There’s nothing stopping unions putting all their top players in a touch tournament if that’s the way they want to go. I’d love to see DMac, Kolbe, Beauden, Franks etc throwing the ball around and breaking ankles

Owen or Ben Franks?

Would imagine they have the side step of a fully loaded oil tanker with a broken rudder.

Could lower level club teams run with this as a way to get people back on the field?

Definitely it would go against what WR have done in the last few years - encouraging scrums and mauls through, penaltising teams who are weak at scrums and allowing more times for mauls - two stops warnings. I say its a bullshit story.
