No mention of scrum

There's a term that got lost in translation (or perhaps not for government projects).

However, simplified for effect:

A scrum is where two teams push against each other with very little gain in territory

but

A rolling maul can be very successful for one team to gain territory

The Americans couldn't cope with maul as it sounds like somewhere they go to shop.
