welll.. there IS/ARE.
At the elite end in particular the LAWS need to be blown as written.
When you permit bodies to fly around at ruck time an end up everywhere then you get the mess that are modern elite ruck with people off their feet, leading to head clashes because defenders have no target to get under "at" to drive attacking supporters away. "Supporting your own weight" (SOW)is now almost meaningless as full time athletes can train to be able to create a stable position with shoulders below hips (SBH) - so maybe SBH should be the criteria rather than SOW ?
I really don't see his issue with lineouts - lifting his a far cleaner procedure and gives eg props something positive to do... back in the day my job was to twat an opponent/barge the oppose jumper if his blockers weren't quick enough to step in then twat ME. I don't see these issues when I go an watch Devizes play at L6. Maybe its me and you guys see the same as level 1 down at level 12?
