    Its fairer

    You can't get ass f**ked in scoring a try and defending a try in the same game

    At least everyone knows where the rule stands

    Benefit of the doubt still exists but only for on field refs. The benefit of the doubt switched to the ref since they send their decision upstairs. This is why sending up I don't know would be a bad idea as it would bring benefit of the doubt back for video ref.

    if no-one knows then it is no try

    we don't give points for effort

    So benefit to the defending team

    Pick one or the other, I don't care which one they choose but stick to it.

    They should just leave it as is and train the refs to call it no try if they have no idea. The on field ref is still the one responsible and If there is enough evidence you'll get points if not you don't get a dodgy try.

    But you're advocating that we save points for effort?
    Not that I'm for or against the idea but legitimate tries could be turned down because players made an effort which blocks ref sight, camera angles etc.

    I tend to err on the side of having to prove a positive (he scored) rather than prove a negative (he didnt score)

    Furry muff.
    I'm not sure where I stand on it, just pointing it out.
