If we are to try and close the gap on Australia in the international game then we have to implement this. If anybody watched the Bronco"s v Eels game at the weekend, the broncos had a tonne of pressure on their own line for the first 20 mins of the second half (I think the first PTB in the Eels half was after 60mins) but the difference in fitness levels and decision making under fatigue was massive compared to super league. It is massively frustrating when a team is is happy to give away a penalty knowing they will get 20-30second breather and reset their line

I think we were one of worst culprits last season.

You've nailed it in your first sentence, DDI
Whenever we play them, the gulf is highlighted.
You don't see it, when their club sides play each other. They play to (reasonably) the same standard. Yet when it's at Test level, their PTBs are immeasurably quicker than ours. Add to this (I've been banging the drum about these for decades), they pass properly ie easy to catch, and they tackle properly. That's why we've not won a Test series for 50 years. Basic rugby.
If you're reaching for a pass, you have less time to adjust and send a decent pass out, yourself. Simple.
Neither glass half full or empty. Just a realist.

It's made the NRL a far, far better TV product. It needs to be introduced here. Going forward the two competitions need to get their heads together on rule changes and agree on a single format. If there needs to be differences on things like referee numbers or specific video ref technologies then fine, but the basic rules of the sport should be the same at all levels in both competitions.

Big, big onus on Super League coaches to smarten up the product. We've got some very decent players in this country playing the game like a cynical amateur team. The moving off the mark, the incorrect and messy play the balls and the constant dodging and weaving behind the markers begging for penalties needs to stop. Clean, fast play the balls with the speed of the ruck dictated by the physicality of the tackle or the power of the carry, not by tacklers performing a boston crab and pinning the ball carrier, then peeling off in instalments.

You are spot on about the passing accuracy Lefty. It is very rare that a player has to adjust their run to catch a ball, that split second adjustment can bring an attacking move to a halt. Another little thing that highlights the difference for me is in a super league game you will see at least one forward taking a simple drive from a simple pass just drop the ball with nobody near them. Although I did spot this a couple of times over the weekend I put that down to rustiness but you can normally watch a whole round of NRL and not see a forward drop a ball with no pressure. I don't know if in SL that is down to passing accuracy, concentration or fatigue. I am a big believer that RL in this country need England to win the world cup to get the exposure and subsequent sponsorship and TV revenue it needs to grow. Even though we were close in 2017 we looked a million miles away on the lions tour. The 6 again rule will just increase the gap in terms of fitness, discipline and goal line defence.

I forgot to set up the recordings for the NRL last round so didn't see how the new rule played out, however i'd be reluctant to bring in a rule change mid season (even if it does feel like we are starting from scratch). I'd prefer us to see how it evolves in the NRL and make a decision on whether to bring it in or not from 2021.

Saw all the NRL matches and generally the rule gave positives including increased game time,fewer penalties,faster PTB's and an increase in game speed.

Only 1st games under the new rule,however, and it will be interesting to see how coaches attempt to counter the rule.

Accordingly I will defer judgement until many more rounds have been completed.

I like the 6 rule, it’s going back to like when the ref and defending team aren’t set up for a quick tap, but being allowed.
However I think the attacking team should still have to opinion to kick for touch if they wish to do so.
