During the Great War, one British General was so outpaced by the events on the Western Front and the advances in millitary technology that he retired and asked to be sent home, citing stress, disorientation and the onset of dementia. As this same General spent his better years bashing Afrikaaners during the Boer War, many of his peer jokingly said that he had been "Stellenbosched!" by the whole experience. The same could be said of the average Rugby fan after reading the antics that the Stellenbosch University. Some of the major rule changes being experimented on are thus: Downgrading most penalty offences to free-kicks. Allowing handling in the ruck. Backs must be 5m behind rear foot at scrum. Removing corner flags. Permitting defending teams to collapse rolling maul. Ball cannot be passed back into 22 and kicked out on the full. What are your thoughts on these wacky ideas? Revolutionary and a boon, or annoying and meaning that Rugby will be "Stellenbosched"?
