With defenses getting better, players getting fitter and a lot of teams cancelling each other out what's opinions of dropping a man to open up the field?

Warrington can afford to drop a man, you have 14 men most weeks

Yeah but that cliche of the crowd being an extra man is overrated IMO.

50 years ago I wrote and had published a letter to a now defunct newspaper, The Post and Evening Chronicle advocating 11 a side, scrums to be abolished and any infringements i.e. knock on, forward pass etc, possession turned over to the opposition to be started with a tap penalty. It never happened but I do remember some years ago a 10 a side competition at Central Park amongst around 8 clubs. It was sponsored by the NCB and was very entertaining. Fast and Open.

Reflected by our 15 match winning run we closed the season with.

It might get over the malaise now in the game.

It was the British Coal NINES and we won it
1988. We beat Wigan in the first round, and guess what....the did the Walk






Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

I was there that night.
Very enjoyable and our group got in for half price as we were approached by a steward on the way in who made us, ahem, a special offer.

Back to the original post.
I think this is at least worthy of a trial.
Anything that alleviates the current homogeneous, boring reliance on five drives and a kick has got to be a good thing.

Technically we are still the holders.
We beat the Rest Of The World team in the final too.

If the 10 metre rule was properly applied, there wouldn't be such a problem.
