    Yes, you can to avoid having uncontested scrums...but Italy today lost the tight head AND the loose head prop....!

    Yes you can, in fact it is required to have a prop or you can't scrummage.  Back when I played I actually started as a winger one game and when one of our props got injured I was put in there!  I was typically a flanker so I had played forward before but I was still a little out of my depth at prop. These days in order to prevent injury they allow a real prop to get subbed in.
