    Although I also think that if you changed the rules to make it less effective, we would probably just see teams taking a lot of pots at goal instead of line-outs.
    Most teams have 1-3 players who are pretty much guaranteed to break the advantage line. Getting a try from 5m out isn't that difficult.

    The problem is that now it also comes with the chance of a yellow for the defensive team too.

    Yeah this is true, it reduces the point of kicking to corner from penalty quite a lot. Scrum is already a very risky option for most teams, so this does then bring kicks at goal back in .

    Rugby a very delicate eco system, need to be careful.

    A blight on the game the way they're being policed. Defence basically has 2 options: concede a try or concede a penalty/penalty try and get someone binned for bringing the maul down.
