World Rugby are trialing YET ANOTHER scrum setting variation: Crouch, bind and 'slide'

As we highlighted earlier in the week the Varsity Cup in South Africa is trialing a number of new Law Variations. 

And yes, you guessed it, there's a new scrum setting protocol. The referees scrum commands are no longer "crouch, bind and set", they are now: "crouch, bind and slide". 

We have no idea what the purpose of this new protocol is.
