Amendments to the blatant cheating around the play the ball.......And about time too IMO
https://www.superleague.co.uk/article/7 ... ree-policy

It will be interesting to see how these revised rulings stop both the defending player laying in the ruck area and also how the dummy half reacts to having a player laid around in the ruck area.

There's no doubt that coaches and players will now be looking for new ways to exploit and milk easy penalties, so the onus is on the referees to now stamp these ridiculous indents out of our game as it was getting beyond a joke IMO

I think it's a positive move to rule out loop hole exploitation of current rules and unsportsman like conduct. Maybe its late coming but hats off to them for addressing it reasonably quickly






Loving the success and the silverware, keep them coming :)

Interesting and good improvement to the Laws of the game as it was really not in the spirit of the game.

Whilst I am sure most clubs either used or at least considered the use of this tactic if my memory is correct I seem to recall both Wigan especially Tomkins and Castleford mainly Gale were the main users of this ploy, which says a lot about the coaching methods. I assume McDermott was either against exploiting this or perhaps he never quite got the hang of it? :D

Good decision. Just a pity they were forced to make the players/coaches clean it up.

Now they need to sort out the offside especially when defending players are supposed to be behind the try line, which they never are. Perhaps it's time for the touch judges to earn their fees.
