    Scrum is a Rugby formation. No idea what it means beyond that.

    Scrum: A play in Rugby in which the two sets of forwards mass together around the ball and, with their heads down, struggle to gain possession of the ball.

    1 aor scrum·mage \ˈskrə-mij\ : a rugby play in which the forwards of each side come together in a tight formation and struggle to gain possession of the ball using their feet when it is tossed in among them ; also : the arrangement of players in a scrum
    b: a usually brief and disorderly struggle or fight : scrape, scuffle2 aBritish : madhouse

    2 b: a usually tightly packed or disorderly crowd : throng

    Puede bien estarse refiriendo a algo como "esto es casi un disturbio", "esto es casi una casa de locos", "esto es un disturbio en una casa de locos".

    Esperemos otras opiniones.

    'Medio mele.Es, junto con el apertura, el cerebro del equipo. Por sus manos van a pasar muchos balones y suelen, por tanto, estar dotados de una buena forma física, de optima toma de decisiones y de una técnica perfecta. Va a dirigir el juego de los delanteros, situándose normalmente detraes de ellos para enlazar el juego con los tres cuartos. Numero 9.'

    thanks wolfgang, benilde and avellana!
    thanks for your help!
    avellana, since the context is a political argument in the parliament, i think it probably referes metaphorically to what you explained to me.

    see you!
