Big Picture Posted September 27, 2018 Share Posted September 27, 2018 15 hours ago, bobbruce said: What worries me is the purpose of the second ref in the NRL is to tidy up the ptb not speed it up. There are plenty of occasions when the second ref stops play and makes the attacker ptb from the right spot. And that's a good thing. Defenses need time to get set for the next play so that the game doesn't degenerate into 5 identical drives needing no skill to advance the ball. 14 hours ago, DavidM said: I think tidying up the ruck is more important than speed . We’re obsessed with speed at the PTB which has made it a total farce and mess . The NRL has shown one can lead to the other . Absolutely spot on. The faster the game moves the less often defenses will be set and the less skill teams will need to gain ground. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
