    Some interesting ones here, not least the first one….thoughts? Some good, others less so for me.

    NRL rule changes for 2021 season
    Introduction of a two-point field goal for kicks taken from more than 40 metres out
    ‘Six-again’ to be called for 10-metre infringements
    Penalties for teams if they leave a scrum before a referee calls ‘break’
    A play-the-ball restart if the ball or player with the ball goes over the sideline
    Video referees to review replays after an on-field referee awards a try but a conversion attempt will not be allowed until it gets the green light
    Injured players will be interchanged if a trainer ask for play to be stopped
    When a captain’s challenge is inconclusive a team will not be docked for an unsuccessful attempt
    A handover will be ordered when a player does not make a genuine attempt to play the ball correctly with their foot

    I’d keep with what we have, because for any changes to be worthwhile we would need the referees to be consistent

    Agreed.Just apply the laws that we have, fairly, and that would great!

    I thought the ref could already give a penalty for leaving the scrum early, I don’t mind them giving 2points for a 40 meter drop goal, as that’s quite hard, and I think teams will only try one near the end of the match.

    I’ve also enjoyed seeing the Captains challenge in the Aussie matches this season, and think we should have it, only problem is, not all our matches are televised, unlike the Aussies.

    The problem with playing the ball with your foot, is that refs are very inconsistent at penalising it.
