Why is the specific action chosen in the rules? The whole point of the play the ball is to restart play after a tackle. We want quick ones because it's a quick game. If players aren't using the foot, and people are complaining that rules should be followed, just adjust the rule? I honestly couldn't care less whether it is or isn't. For me, the attacker needs to get to his feet (both feet must have touched the floor at some point). The ball then needs to be placed on the floor, go under a foot and be rolled behind him. Simple and not many ways you can whinge that it "wasn't done right". Fair enough but I think your missing the point. As I understand it the NRL are trying to re-establish the correct rules around it as well as the action. They’re not whinging, but feel the area is contributing to unfair advantage as well as confusion for players,refs and coaches. Not concerned with speccies. The rules are clear, but very few players or Refs are playing to them. None of them are whinging either. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
