Who is deviating?
Shock horror something sensible.
I would hope that we could move the game into quarters instead of halves.
This would extend the career of older players and help with injuries. Plus the tv revenue would be up with more boring ads being able to be shown.
More breaks for fans to spend money at the grounds.
Extend the quarters to 30 mins each to get better value out of players.
Interchange would take on a more exciting feel.
Having extras breaks (quarters) wouldn't keep older players in the game, especially if you increase the total game time to 120min.
Interchange, bring gal on for the last quarter.
increase it by a couple of players.
Lol, bring on the slower old guys to really bore the shit out of fans in the last 30min.
Sbw could play on for another decade.
Who doesn’t want see him get belted into middle age?!
No thanks. Tigers fans are happy to see guys like Benji play on into his mid 40s. The rest of us not so much
To think you were getting on with us so well down at wt forum!
Dont turn now son, don’t become a latrell when you heading stef!
Sure but rule 1053

Jennings official - 2 years. Official Eels FB page
One year would have been ideal but I can live with that. He was exceptional last year and I’ve never been a big fan.
from the website
The Parramatta Eels have today re-signed Michael Jennings on a two year contract until the end of the 2021 season.
Michael formed a strong combination with Maika Sivo on the left side this year, making a major contribution to his teammate's try scoring record.
Parramatta Eels Club General Manager of Football Mark O'Neill said, "Securing Michael is an important component to our roster management going forward.
"His skill and experience really contributed to our much improved performance in 2019 and he will add enormous value in the future as we strive for premiership success considering he knows what it takes to perform on the highest stage."
Michael made his NRL debut in 2007, he has represented both Australia and Tonga at international level, he played in the NSW Origin team and the NRL All Stars.
I’m sure by 2021 he will be taking a decent pay cut.
I’m sure he’s at least taking a decent pay cut for 2020. I actually 2 years is ideal IF his 2021 salary isn’t meaning he should be an automatic starter
By 2021 he mightn't still be in the top 17. But if paying overs for a backup in the second year of his contract means we get him in 2020 when we need him then it's worth it.
Golden try is a much better alternative to golden point and refs might be more inclined to give penalties in that scenario. Currently they are loathe to give penalties in golden point even for blatant infringements, unless you're the Broncos of course.
