BREAKING NEWS: The unthinkable has happened - a League team have PUSHED in a scrum

It might suprise you, but it is not illegal to push in a Rugby League scrum, as demonstrated by the Paramatta Eels. 

According to League Law Book: "It is permissible for forwards to push - except where the Safeplay Code applies, once the scrum has been correctly formed but if it moves an appreciable distance to the disadvantage of any one team before the ball is put in then the Referee shall order the scrum to reform in its original position."
