    I was more referring to changing rules for the hell of it. That’s the NRL motto

    So they can change it back again later in the season after someone exploits it in a game vs Rorters

    I think the refs are going to be hesitant to apply a penalty in the first tackle due to the severity of the 6 again situation

    The interesting thing will be if the refs bin anyone for excessive 6 agains ... im guessing they wouldnt ... if you are gonna give away 6 more tackles you may aswell lay there forever

    Im betting the new rule is gonna be a bit of a mess of referee discretion

    Radical rule changes with a relatively unknown effect on the way the game will be played are more likely to have an adverse effect on clubs like the Roosters, simply because they are optimised for the game as it is (or was).

    That’s the biggest problem I see with it as well. A team that got a penalty used to gain a new set of six plus an extra 10-25m from the kick for touch. Now it’s only a new set of six. You don’t even have the advantage of a quick tap because you’ve been held down for so long the opposition is already back inside waiting for you.

    That sounds like it makes sense - but I don't think it really does.

    It's why strong clubs are most resistant to big changes. Any randomness harms them more, relative to other clubs.

    James Graham may have regressed as a player, but listening to his views on the game and the future rules on League Live, he really is a breath of fresh air.
    Seems quite smart and more articulate than Sam , and no need for subtitles :thinking:

    So you're denying any involvement?

    Shame on Parry. With no nsw cup this year he has no opportunity to push for a new contract.

    Wasn't there some talk around earlier in the year about Parry attracting interest from rival clubs?

    You can teach defence. See Moses.
