On breaking from the scum carry the ball and if in a push over try situation actually ground the ball once its at their feet.
To attack the opposing flyhalf as a ball carrier (this is usually the weak point). To protect their own scrum half when they collect the ball at the base of the scrum. To retain the ball when a scrum is successfully pushed forward therefore gaining ground.
