Re: Canberra Raiders half George Williams stuck in quarantine in Victoria

By contrast, NT have today closed their border to Qld. Their Chief Minister said there are currently flights in the air and those arriving from Brisbane would have the option of quarantining in Darwin or returning to Brisbane. Regardless of what you think of the border decision itself, that seems a...

Re: Raiders coach Ricky Stuart praises new NRL rule changes

Commentators and NRL administration are confused about what they really want. speed of play the ball leads to dummy half running and flat passes at the ruck.

Re: Raiders coach Ricky Stuart praises new NRL rule changes

At least the two point field goal rewards a skill. The play the ball after a touch finder actually penalises a skill. The game of rugby league is as much about defence as it is attack, about game management. The NRL seems to be hell bent on turning the game into basketball. The defending team (well...

So, with the refs calling 6 again for offsides, I believe that they will still have the discretion to call a penalty for "professional fouls" or repeated offences. I'm ok with that if the professional intent is obvious, but I'd really like to see some hard and fast rulings on repeated offe...
