Scrum-halves fall victim to one of science's most difficult concepts: a straight line
Following the first proper outing for the new scrum laws at the weekend, it is clear that every international scrum half has no idea what a straight line is. As one coach said after the game, "Once we get that sorted out and the half-backs put the ball in straight we're sure the free kicks and penalties awarded will decrease".
This patience from coaches is understandable because, as we all know, a straight line is one of the most difficult things to fathom in the the history of science. Only last year, Stephen Hawking admitted that he was happy with his grasp on how the universe began, but if you asked him to drive his special chair in a straight line he would be utterly baffled by the mind-pickling complexity of it.
So, to assist those poor nines who are trying to get their heads around this most difficult of concepts here is some help to grasp it
1. A straight line is what Jamie Noon always ran. Always.
2. A straight line is what David Lemi never runs. Ever
3. Still confused? See the below diagram:
