    Players might attemp them close to half time. In strong wind. They should be a lot easier to kick than the 40/20. I predict 2 per game.

    Ben Hunt will attempt it 7 times and it will go out on the full 7 times.

    In one half of footy.

    My pick is Wade Graham or the Chad!

    By the way who kicked it in the international 9s?

    Going to go out on a limp, and put forward that no one will kick one this season.

    If it's not kicked before Hodgson plays, he'll do it. Probably within the first 10 minutes

    Likely to strip it then boot it in the same play.

    You all know its going to be Brad Parker.

    He will drop the ball inside his own 20, it will hit his foot, sail over everyone's heads and go out over the 40 yard line

    Klemmer will do the second one
    Kicking the ball because it looked at him funny

    There will never be a successful 20/40 kicked in the NRL

    Someone will fluke one at some point probably.

    But how many attempts are going to go out on the full compared to that one success?

    I tend to agree.

    I can't think of a situation where teams would even try to attempt it.

    the only possible time will be when it’s completely useless. Like last few minutes of a game when someone is getting lapped. Any other time it’s just way too easy to defend.

    the most likely outcome of this is teams just have the open side winger drop back while the fullback covers the short side. At best this means a team MIGHT be able to gain some extra yards by spreading it, but given they’ll be exiting their red zone teams can quite easily just rush up to shut that down.

    I think the sheer number of teams who successfully managed to not concede tries while having a man sin binned this year should show that just artificially trying to remove 1 player from the defensive line is not actually that big a deal

    Someone will catch a lazy fullback.

    Ricky Stuart would get one.
