    You mean those that are a little bit "too literal" missed it.

    It was pretty f**king obvious to everyone else.

    The 6 again rule won’t last a month.

    In theory it is a good rule... whether it plays out like that is the question

    There needs to be a consequence for doing it cynically on your own line - they’ve gotta grow a pair and start binning players for professional fouls more often in these situations, or somehow allow teams to still take the 2 if this type of penalty is conceded in your own 20.

    It is biggest blight on the game for me. Slows it right down and stops the flow this rule hopefully helps that

    Well...hopefully it means we hear less bullshit backchat from the players. Every breakdown in play is the same story over an over. 'BUT SIR!' just f**k off mate and play football.

    Also an opportunity to stop inane commentary around refereeing decisions mid-game. At least a bit of it. They won't have a chance to stop and look.

    Most ruck penalties are 50/50 calls anyway. All they do is waste upto a min or so for guys to get onside

    why didn’t he just say it’s being done to save money instead of making up some bullshit that the fans want it

    We can only hope that this puts an end to those refs speaking to & questioning Cam Smith like that.

    Politis and Robinson have stated that two refs should remain. Not sure what advantage you see for Easts that they don’t

    Subjective rules suck. And you see it all the time. What is a penalty at the the 5th minute isn't in the 72nd.

    Will be very interesting to see how this plays out and if some teams give away a lot more sets than others.

    Not a fan of this change. Nor the stupid change of being able to set the scrum wherever you want. Scrum should take place at point of infringement. That's it.
