Same situation happened at SLC vs PAD, front rower was sent which forced uncontested scrums. In my mind it should have stayed uncontested because I must have counted 3-4 scrum resets each time it occurred.
Paduas pack seemed to be more dominant throughout the first half and the intensity brought was good signs. They looked hungrier than iona and seemed to treat the game as a championship. If this mindset is continued padua could be a real contender for top dog.
Didn't stay long however Ionas backline seems very dangerous this year, the outside center was running circles around the brown dogs.
Forward pack seemed strong for Padua even with the similar size in packs. Anyone else got info?
