A lot of scrum-halves get inappropriate criticism if their pack is underperforming.
They suddenly become "far better players" behind a dominant pack that clears out quickly and presents the ball well.
e.g. Wiggy.
There is abolutely no point in trying to treat slow ball as quick go forward ball.
Always best to try and draw an offside or make sure everything is in place before trying a box kick or running the ball with a planned backs move, all based on what's facing you.

Yes, I agree they can become a focal point for criticism because they are so visible/exposed
