    During regular season, then come finals, a different set of rules.

    The current ones.

    I wonder if the Sharks and Manly had been asked at the 80 minute mark whether they each wanted to go for the win or accept the draw, what they'd have done.

    I reckon Manly would have taken the point. Their concern is to avoid the spoon, which they've never landed in 70-something years. Sharks might have played on trying to make the top 4.

    Cannot win from a kick, stops the kickfest.

    Must be a try, infringe and give a penalty, all are differential, immediate sin bin (game over) your are a man short. Give another two short.

    Same rules regular and post season.

    You blokes didn't kick except that lol penalty kick

    Probably would've won if you dumb merkins took the tap instead

    But you wouldn't have scored a point without all dem penalties

    Every try was off the back of a penalty, hell I'm not even sure we scored a point (other than the one that mattered most) without a penalty in our favor

    I am not talking about yesterday, do not care we deserved to lose. I am talking about the rule.

    We should have golden rush

    If we're all locked up at full time, everyone drops 15 pingers, then they get flown to Broken Hill and taken to a gold mine

    First person to strike gold wins two points

    Parramatta would sign Andrew Johns if we had this rule and they'd win their next Premiership

    They do in soccer & funnily enough, they have heaps of draws & don’t care too much.

    Just have 5 mins each way, not golden point or f**k it off!

    No, 1 point is like a win to us considering our poor for & against compared to other top 4 contenders.

    What is wrong with a good old fashioned draw? They occur in Super League.

    Draw or 10 minutes extra time. No golden anything.

    The finals extra time system we have now is fine.

    Draws do not work in knockout format.

    Hence extra time. Not golden point.

    I used to be behind the idea of golden try but it's beyond stupid. Field goals and penalty goals are legitimate ways to score points in rugby league.

    Commenting on a thread that’s not about Gould, Griffin or the panthers? How dare you.

    I don’t like GP. Would prefer extra time.

    Golden point is a blight on the game.

    Ban it altogether in the regular season. In the semis play 5 min each way - if no decision then golden point.
