1. At the play the ball, require the ball to be played backwards by the foot (as is done in the NRL). Penalise any player propelling the ball backwards with the hand.

2. The law is that, once the tackle has been completed and called “held” by the referee, the tackler has to immediately release the tackled player and move or roll away. If a defender on the same team deliberately contacts a tackler after “held” has been called (thereby slowing down the play the ball), he should be penalised.

Simple.

Simple indeed

If you follow the letter of the law 80% of the ptb are illegal by the player/team in possession yet its always the defender who gets penalised. The whole law needs re-writing.

Not bothered to be honest. I'd file it along with trainers on the pitch and wasting time at drops outs under the category of 'Minor issues some pedantic fans get disproportionately angry about'. We have miles bigger problems in the game both on and off the pitch, happy for them to leave this as is, just penalise the stand-outs as they do currently.


It's a bigger issue than you make out. It cheapens the game and makes it visually look shocking. The NRL looks professional, it looks high quality even when the games aren't great. Super League looks like a different sport. Players these days make as many metres after the tackle as they do before and climbing over the tackler to play the ball into him should just be reversed, it's the most blatant cheating and goes against the code of the sport.

This. The attacking team has big advantage to make quick PTB's while blatantly not making a genuine attempt to play the ball correctly.

Some of the PTB's you see are shocking

Some 99% are shocking time to make it penalty if not done right that would stop it

Infringements at the play the ball are entrenched in most of not all players in SL.

I think we all agree we need a change and to clean up this area. We must all accept that if the decision is made to make that change then we will have to put up with a massive number of penalties. I have a vague recollection of them trying to do it 5 or 6 years ago but gave up after a couple of weeks as there was a collective outcry that the penalties were ruining he game.
