Is there a danger that games are becoming too one-sided, predictable and even boring due to set restarts? Particularly in the NRL, the six again rule seems to accentuate the difference between good and bad sides. The better ones are scoring more points and the less good ones conceding more. I’m not keen on going back to penalties for ruck infringements, but what else could be done to get the balance right?
Staggering stat from Sunday’s games: the average ball in play time was 66mins, up 13 mins from the 2020 average pre-lockdown. https://www.superleague.co.uk/article/1490/faster-&-harder-six-again-and-no-scrums I’m not sure I believe it, to be honest. Loads of more tackles, metres, and - yes - errors, of course. You certainly get your money’s worth with rugby league!
RFL Laws Committee recommends ‘six-again’, no scrums for the rest of 2020 and other changes for when Super League restarts (and for all levels of the game). https://www.rugby-league.com/article/56839/rfl-laws-committee-recommendations Not yet finalised but seems unlikely to me in the current climate that these won’t be rubber-stamped by the RFL Board early next month.
