I’ve mentioned this before, but the law related to the put-in at the scrum was changed fairly recently, such that the scrum-half can be offset to his side of the scrum. His shoulder should be in line with the centre of the scrum. This will give the impression of a squint feed, and certainly will make winning a scrum against the head by hooking virtually impossible. The only conclusion I can draw is the World Rugby actively wish to remove the contest element of the scrum from the game, as in RL.
Even with the SH offset to the centre line of the scrum, it shouldn't mean the ball landing under the nose of the no8.
Agreed that there seems to be a shift toward uncontested scrums.
