Story 3

Subject: Uncontested Scrums

Situation: A prop was late to the game (went to wrong ground) so the first scrum had to be uncontested. The prop then turned up 5 mins late. His team wanted contested scrums, the other team objected. Can I reinstate contested scrums in this situation?

Decision: SJRU 2011 Competition Rules allow you do that. See Rule 4.14(D)iii.
