More Rugby League in a Rugby League Match

This petition had 9 supporters

It is reasonable that after an 80 minute hard fought game of rugby league that ends in a draw that there be a golden point period to attempt to find a winner. It is not reasonable that in that attempt, the main thrust of the rugby league game being, hard runs, tactical breaks and tries in the corner, not be emphasized equally in the golden point period. At this point in time while the field goal is allowed, the golden point period has developed into a simple positioning in the field by the team with the ball to simply achieve a field goal that is not the true spirit of the rugby league game.


BAN THE FIELD GOAL in the golden point period. This maintains the spirit of rugby league, keeps the emphasis on scoring a try, and stops a team cheaply getting two points for a simple field goal. Where no tries are scored in this extra time period it is a far better outcome that both teams share the points rather than one team cheaply achieving two points on the basis of a simple field goal. This is a simple way to promote the spirit of rugby league through to the end of golden point period.
