Having watched a couple of NRL games, they play the ball much quicker and it makes for a more open entertaining game. The pace of their game is scary compared to watching SL.

The constant laying on and flopping at the tackle just makes the game slower and less entertaining. It's not like there's a great skill in lying on top of a tackled player.


I dont like lying on either, but a lot of the penalties are for grappling and wrestling. I think a guy hding the ball should have to hold the ball and wish we still had the ball steal rule.

I personally dont much care for extremely fast ptb's as it will be harder for a defending team to get back the ludicrous 10m (where is the skill in running back 10m?). It will also contibute to higher score margins. Id rather have a slower ptb if it means we have a closer game
