Here's something: at one point Ha'pence tapped the ball deliberately into touch, with an English wing breathing down his neck chasing a kick... didn't that used to be a penalty??
I noticed that.
Not sure about the official laws today, but I'm sure that was an offence when I was in school.
I watched a NZ vs Barbarians game from 1973 the other day. The pace at which the game was played was amazing. I know that today the players are pure athletes, but the speed of the wingers back then was mindblowing. Also, a scrum took about 10 seconds to set and contest, now it takes about 3 minutes. There is a lot to be said for the old game.
But now I can choose between awesome abs and insane abs. I just don't know which to choose.
