LIST | 5 things all players absolutely HATE about modern rugby

Over the last couple of years there have been a number of things that have begun bugging many people about the sport we know and love.

Below is me venting some frustration about a number of issues that I think are damaging the game for fans around the globe:

1. Scrum resets

How have we got to the point where we need three attempts at every scrum before the front rowers seem capable of holding themselves up. It’s not just that though, it’s the 30 seconds between each reset cleaning boots and complaining that means we lose vast quantities of game time watching this farce.
