    One for each player would be the best option

    No 6 again for charge downs. If you can’t get the kick away, that’s on you!

    Each fan is allowed on the field once every 14.5 minutes and they can perform a piledriver on one player

    I’d like to see a rule that you can’t change the rules unless ratified by the rlif and adopted by every country. Same game played to the same rules, this would be novel.

    3 point penalty goals, might take out some the deliberate penalties to reset the defensive line

    The way it is now is the way it has been for 110 years, that is how our game evolved from Rugby Union!

    No contracts for other clubs to be signed more than 6 months in advance.

    If you kick the ball into the in-goal area, it's a tap on the 20m line.

    And for all rules minus rules relying on tech (bunker) to be implemented game-wide, from U16s bush footy to NRL.

    No. Go away.

    If there is one set of rules for all levels it should be England in charge of them and the NRL should have as close to no say as possible. NRL folk have a terrible idea of how the game should be played and refereed.

    Get rid of conversions and drop-goals, 4 points for a try, 2 for a penalty. Might reduce the number of penalties given away, especially close to the posts.

    I think Robert Elstone has opinions quite close to mine, so i wouldn't mind that.

    If you will allow the sniper to expand their role, can they also be used to take out non players and officials who look like they are going to get in the way of the ball - trainers, streakers, etc.

    Problem is that coaches never see the controversial incidents during a game... have you seen them at the press conference?

    Journo: "crackle, crackle, mumble, mumble, crackle, mumble".
    What journo actually said but for the rubbish audio setup: " What did you think of your player biting the opposition fullback's ear".
    Coach: "It's not his go and I didn't see that incident during the game, but I'll be looking at the tape later tonight".
