We really were LOOSE forwards then, you could break as
soon as the ball was fed into the scrum. Then get around
fast and TW*T the gobby little scrum half into the ground.
And if he did get it away, your partner was in the OH's face.
Beautiful to see. :cheers:
Bring it back please. :D

Some of my happiest memories of playing were roaming around off the scrum and letting some gobshite scrum half get the good news :D


No 6 was always the dirtiest and most torn shirt .. in those days a role of 6 was to fall on the ball and creatre the ruck real style, aluminium studs and all!

and a photo to prove it ...1959

Also, the creeping wing forwards (never understood flanker) created the scrum half dive pass, little buggers had to escape the clutches some how ...

PS When was the law of encroaching wing forwards changed to retire behind rear feet ??? and subsequently stay bound?

You aren't that old are you Fids?

Law was changed in the 60'S, How old are you Fids?

In the 1960s rule changes were introduced to try and limit the effect the loose forwards were having on back play. There was no obligation to bind to a scrum for flankers at this time. The offside line was dictated by the position of the ball even when it was in the scrum, and so when it emerged at the back of the scrum the scrum-half would often find the opposition flankers and scrum-half arriving with it. The new offside line became the hindmost foot of the scrum. Only the opposition scrum-half could move forward of that point, and all flankers had to stay bound unless they remained behind the hindmost foot of the scrum.[16] Another rule change introduced allowed the number 8 or the rear-most bound forward to detach from a scrum with the ball, previously it could only be retrieved by the scrum-half.

A ball can only appear as going straight in when its stationary. When last have you seen a stationary scrum?

The first yellow card shown in an international was during the All blacks 1995 tour of France when Irish referee Gordon Black showed it to the All blacks lock Mark Cooksley after he'd punched an opponent in a midweek match at Nancy. The ref later found out that it had yet to be introduced officially but it was shortly afterwards.

The first 'official' recipient of a yellow card in a Test match was Ben Clarke, playing for England against Ireland at Lansdowne Road. He stamped on his Bath club mate Simon Geoghegan in the 63rd minute and was shown a yellow card, but played on. Playing on after a yellow card remained law till after the 1999 Rugby World Cup. Then temporary suspension of ten minutes was introduced, signalled by the brandishing of a yellow card.

The first yellow card shown at a world cup was to Argentina's Roberto Grau (ARG) by referee Paddy O'Brien in the 15th minute of the match against Wales in Cardiff at RWC 1999, whereas, Italian Alessandro Moscardi holds the record for most yellow cards at a world cup. At RWC 1999, Moscardi was sent to the sin bin in matches against England, Tonga and New Zealand.

The first player sent off in a world cup match was Wales' Hugh Richards - by referee Kerry Fitzgerald in the 71st minute of the semi-final against New Zealand in Brisbane at RWC 1987.

Incidentally, the French at one stage had a white card as well. Yellow and red were for varying degrees of foul play, the white card for law infractions. The white card has subsequently disappeared.
