Players now compete for the ball in a 2v2 condition scrum with the addition of a first receiver. This means six players are now assembled in a small area of the pitch this starts to develop the players tactical awareness of space in the open field by introducing binding onto a teammate's belt. Some scrum technique is beginning to be introduced use the nearest two players. So all players should get a go again. The Instinct of the players is to move the ball away from the initial area of contest here as the ball carrier recognizes the threat from a Defender. He transfers the ball into both hands in order to have the ball available for a pass. I don't know now the 2v2 scrum has been introduced plus first receivers this opens up further space for the players to utilize away from the restart area here. We can clearly see how the players have utilized the space created by the concept of the 2v2 restart. The outside defending players are drawn by the ball carrier towards the touchline having the ball available in both hands. Again, the ball carrier uses the inside support who happen to be the two players that were involved in the scrum.
