I propose changes to the Golden Point rule in NRL matches.  Under the current system of Golden Point, the team that loses  does not get any points despite drawing the match in regular time. As each game is worth two competition points to the winner, I suggest the following. At full-time, each team receives half a point for drawing the match at the end of regular time. They then play off in Golden Point for the right to win the one remaining competition point. This way, the losing team comes away from the match with some reward for their efforts. This half a point could be crucial in determining their position on the ladder especially if they are in the Top Eight and do not have to rely on for-and-against. If you will not scrap Golden Point, then please ensure that the losing team receives a reward for their efforts over an eighty minute period of regular time.
