    i'd like to see the first 5 minutes of extra time changed to golden try:
    for field goals and penalties points are added and game carries on as per normal
    if a try is scored that ends the game
    if scores are locked at the break 2nd half goes to golden point

    i think this would help resolve the boring field goal kick-a-thon we get whenever a game goes to golden point

    frankly given how long the rule has been in place and how many games have gone to golden point you would think players would be getting better at kicking them by now some attempts are downright embarrassing

    p.s. i think refs wouldn't be as scared to blow a penalty in golden try knowing it might not decide the game

    I'd like to see a rule where if 1 rule is changed then there can't be any rule changes for another 5 years. I'd also like to see a rule where the rules can't be changed during a season. Another one would be that the proposed rule change would be announced in the time after the grand final and before the first team returns to pre-season training.

    I'd like to see a rule where punching Dylan Walker was worth as many points as a penalty goal.

    and punching Cameron Smith is worth an 8 point try

    good point

    so often the nrl brings in these knee-jerk rule changes as a reaction to some controversy and they forget that any change to one part of the game can create a ripple effect somewhere else

    ideally they would only change rules at the end of the season and only after consulting with the clubs

    I agree with golden try ... tho just have the entire 2 periods of extra time golden try

    Some logistics to sort out though ... what if a team kicks 2 penalty goals? Its gonna need more than a try to get the win

    But if you can't kick penalty goals won't the defending team just play sillybuggers?

    yeah i think in extra time you should be able to accumulate as many points as you can via goals and field goals - and if no tries are scored then whoever is infront at the end of the extra time wins .... but if a try is scored to put you infront you win instantly

    f**k extra time off for regular season games. It was brought in, knee jerk as usual, because a finals game went overtime. Just have draws for regular season, full 10 min extra time for finals matches and if still tied go to golden point

    Get rid of the game entirely and replace it with something more interesting.

    You reckon remove 4 players per side, add a bonus zone where tries count as 5 points, condense games into 9 minute halves? I reckon it could take off.

    Or alternatively we could build a time machine and prevent Craig Bellamy from ever becoming a coach. Whatever one is easier.

    No extra time in normal rounds

    Try scorer kicks off

    Any penalty inside redzone is given at end of set rather then in middle of it

    Id like to see every player wear gps trackers, and only those caught continuously inside the 10 be penalized.
    Sick of these tit for tat infringements where if you're offside by half a meter the opposition gets an enormous field position advantage, when some offsides aren't looked at
