Who invented scrums in rugby?

Scrummaging has always been apart of the game. However, the original Scrummage was nothing more that both sets of players (up to 40 each side) on a muddy field taking what was a maul. Originally there was no distinction between an awarded or scrum and a loose scrum, today we call it "a ruck". The side awarded the scrum had one player put the ball on the ground and let go of it; there was no requirement of a tunnel. The onside line was dictated by the ball; so players were required to remain behind that line. A scrum would most commonly be awarded when a stalemate occurred between the player with the ball, who would declare "held", and opposition players holding him, who would call "Have it down!". The early rules did not draw a clear distinction between players in or out of a scrum, and did not require players in the scrum to bind. The early rules of rugby, even after re-codification as "Laws of the Rugby Union", said the object of players in the scrum was to kick the ball towards their opponents' goal line. This provision remained in the laws for approximately 20 years after practice had changed in the late 19th century.

What happens if you front pass in rugby?

A forward pass will earn you ; (a) Unintentional knock-on or throw forward. A scrum is awarded at the place of infringement. (b) Unintentional knock-on or throw forward at a lineout. A scrum is awarded 15 metres from the touchline. (c) Knock-on or throw forward into the in-goal. If an attacking player knocks-on or throwsforward in the field of play and the ball goes into the opponents' in-goal and it is made dead there, a scrum is awarded where the knock-on or throw forward happened. (d) Knock-on or throw forward inside the in-goal. If a player of either team knocks-on or throws-forward inside the in-goal, a 5-metre scrum is awarded in line with the place of infringement not closer than 5 metres from the touchline. (e) Intentional knock or throw forward. A player must not intentionally knock the ball forward with hand or arm, nor throw forward. Sanction: Penalty kick. A penalty try must be awarded if the offence prevents a try that would probably otherwise have been scored
