Driving me insane every game. It's like a cheating loophole.

Needs resolving and quickly. Don't watch NRL but how do they handle it? I imagine it's just play on unless it's blatant obstruction by the defender on the ground which in my opinion it should be.

I watch every NRL match and it used to be interpreted the same as it is today in SL. Now they handle it as you say. SL needs to catch up.

As long as it's consistenty a penelty, I've no problem. Then it's down to the players to adapt.

Players have learnt to step over the player on the floor and play the ball into them.

Needs addressing somehow

Also players aren’t getting to their feet before putting the ball down, they are leaving the ball on the ground.

An obvious starting point would be to penalise players who step over a prone tackler for moving off the mark.

Did you see, I think it was Ben Westwood kneeling on a defending Leuluai's neck in the ruck to gain a penalty at pob.
Tbf, a Wire Wigan game was always going to produce a lot of garbage at pob both in attack and defense, you're right its driving me up the wall and spoiling what should have been an entertaining game.
I switched it off way before halftime, and not for the first time this season.

Yep.

If the rules above were enforced it would clear up the issue.

Yep. It's so simple I jsyt cant understand why it hasn't been introduced this season. The whole shambles of the play the ball is definitely affecting my enjoyment of the game.very frustrating to see your team penalised for something they couldn't help when a player steps over them and plays the ball into them before they have chance to even try and clear the ruck.

Leuluai did it last night . The RFL need to address the issue .Simply penalise the offender by means of a sin binning .
