In Topic: Free play rule

Yesterday, 07:15 PM

I like the rule. It encourages enterprising play. My God, couldn't Union do with a rule like that? My only question is, if the team with the free play committed a serious offence, such as elbow in the face rather than obstruction, would that, or should that, be a penalty against the team with the free play?

Was in a pub whilst it was on, found it strange that at 19 v 3 down England got a penalty and took the 3 instead of going for 7.
RU will never appeal to me while the rules encourage these decisions.


And I was speaking to a Union fan who criticised England for going for a try instead of 'taking the three'. In his opinion, that is where the game was lost. It seems that the rugger rah rahs love to see penalty kicks at goal.

It has always been a poor game to watch. But it is now unwatchable. It is a dire, borefest of a game where anyone with any skill gets nullified.

Well. Missed the whole thing. Just read through these comments and sounds so exciting. What a difference to the dirge that was Wales v France earlier on that I had the misfortune to see some of. Well done Salford. Hope that this is the start of a cracking season for The Devils.

I still don't understand why anybody pays good money to go and watch that dross. If those are the 'highlights' what is the other 99% like?
