Bizarre stuff https://www.nrl.com/news/2019/12/06...-trainers-2040-kick-endorses-challenge-system Challenge system - possibly a fan, holding judgement until specific details published. 20/40 - nonsense. No one will use this. It has been trialled and failed in QCUP. And why would we want more kick and hope plays? Choose scrum placement - ok i guess? May introduce some variation in set plays. Unexpected but I'll fall in favour of this one. Reset on ball hitting ref/trainer - fine. "The act of tackling a player in mid-air will be banned whether the player initiating contact is the attacking player or the defending player" - This will go down as one of the all time worst rule changes. Mark my words. The existing rule was well-considered for a reason. This change makes wingers basically untouchable. Kick to wing, winger jumps, can't be tackled, try. Over and over again. The only defence will be to flood the play with blockers - which is also ugly and illegal. Tupou is gonna score 100 tries in 2020.
