Scrum still serves its purpose. It's a restart after the game has been stopped and it gives the non offending team a good platform but not quite as good as a penalty.
 
Each pack weighs about 900kg, so when it comes to scrum time they're always going to be shunting each other backwards & forwards, making it pretty much impossible for the halfback to put the ball into the tunnel straight... reckon the 9 that has possession deserves to roll the ball in a bit closer to his own hookers feet.

These pedantic/complicated scrum laws are ludicrous... scrummaging was at it's best when both packs just engaged themselves, without refs interfering with this ready, steady, go crap, also a halfback knows much better than a referee when to feed the ball into a scrum.
Genuine question, why the need for a 900kg pack if the ball is fed.

Win scrum penalties, 2019 South Africa best example. Scrum pen equals three points or great field position.
