there is another way. Change 5 metre scrum to goal line drop out :)
So the defender who takes the ball into his own in-goal and touches down gets the benefit of a goal line dropout?

Not all pick-and-drive situations arise from a 5 meter scrum.

He means the experimental law where attacker held up in goal is a drop out, not an attacking 5m scrum. Less incentive to bash and barge

Current Referee grade:
Level 8
The only way to stop this boring pick and drive stuff is for the referees to clamp down on pre-binding. After all, it is a flying wedge and is already identified as illegal.

Not all of us find it boring, some of us enjoy it.

I think it's when the ball's been taken in by the attacker (kicked, dropped but went back wards), then made dead (by running over the DBL)??
