I was just wondering about how teams are supposed to defend push over tries from 5m scrums?

If the attacking team is pushing forward surely your only two options are to collapse or let them score a try? So basically if your scrum is stronger than the other team's, you are guarenteed a try! it seems rediculous to me that the defending team gets penalised for collapsing when surely it is as much the fault of the attacking team who is pushing forward?
