Golden point will be hard to piss off because the bookies love it
If anything the rule should be the team with the feed can pack it anywhere they like along the line.
That would at least bring some randomness and possible set plays into the equation.
Make conversions worth 1 point. Allow the option of a 7 on 7 play for 3 points after a try. Fans want to see attacking play. Not rugby conversions.
9 out 10 plays go to the open side when scrums are packed
Gives them 10m extra room to set backline plays
Make it 30 m and we've got a deal.
Not only that but there is talk of extending it if a team kicks a field goal or penalty. The other team to have a set of 6 reply.
Why not just leave it as a draw?
Your sense has no place here
The most perplexing part of all of it is there can still be drawn games
This makes absolutely no sense
Only 3 Roosters leg ups per match.
The current 6, is to many.
Okay, I like the explanation.
What do you think about letting the team feeding the ball chose where the scrum is packed?
I'd be happy not to change any rules. Just enforce them.
Not play the ball properly? Penalty
Repeatedly offside? Penalty
Hold on too long in a tackle? Penalty
Flop in late? Penalty
Yeah we will get a bunch of penalties in the first few weeks but they will settle down and we will start to get more attractive football.
...Oh wait, we tried that and Gould and Johns decided that "a little bit offside" didn't matter and abused the refs until Greenberg caved.
All the more reason to do it.
Can't see how they'd like it. Draws being a legitimate option would only make them money in the main market that is bet on
THIS - Completely....
Tackle - immediate release once tackle completed or on the call of held... not take them to the ground on the held call, no starting to peel off on the held call, no turtling etc
PTB - Regain feet - not using the ball as a crutch to help you get up, place the ball on the ground, play it with the foot
Offside - Dont make it back 10, penalty - whether blindside or open side
Yes 100% correct, the whining from Gus and Joey had me turning off ch9!
According to Gus and Joey its a sin for refs to give a penalty, its a far better game when players are breaking the rules all gaaaame looong.
I reckon removal of the corner post has been brilliant.
Charge down is not 6 again. Would be simple to rule to change, just like the corner post rule.
The issue here is that ALL tackles are not complete until after a ref says something - held surrender etc
So players will lay all over tackled players until this call is made
Then they push the boundary by the slow peel
There should be a simple process of 4 sec - penalty
Not a situation if you can distract the ref it ends up being 9 sec
Also penalised the second movements that occur in the peel as outlined in the rule book to stop the wrestle
Weren't tries originally worth 3 points?
At a guess I'd say that a try was increased to 4 points, leaving a conversion at 2, so that it's worth more than a field goal.
Not that I'm sure that the point system should be changed but if it was for arguments sake, would it not be better to increase the value of a try to 5 points instead?
Could you explain what you mean by this? #scratching head#
Whilst I can understand the logic behind this, I actually think this would be a negative move. I like the idea of rules forcing players to make a decision on risk and reward. This would just mean players shooting out of the line on the last (and I doubt referees will enforce when they've left early).
