No more cringe worthy attempts to win a soft penalty.

Not before time. Everyone is guilty of this form of cheating. Hopefully, this is the end of it.

Moving off the mark has always been a penalty offense but is very rarely punished, despite it happening many times in every game so this is hardly a new "interpretation" but like these other changes it is heavily dependent on the refs actually policing it. I will reserve judgement because it may well be like many other of these changes - the first couple of games result in a lot of penalties before things slowly drift back to how things were.

If it works then it will be a positive step but as always it depends on implementation.

The club should fine the crap out of anybody who gets caught out by these amendments, they couldn't be any clearer about what's acceptable at the PTB.

In other rule-change news, SL referees are hugely relieved to learn that they are now allowed to lift the toilet lid before they take a leak.

Stepping over the tackler to play the ball and thus nullifying the markers has long been an irritation. Glad to see it highlighted finally.

If they'd shown foresight and a little sense at the start of the season we'd probably be 2 points better off now. Why has it taken 12 rounds plus Cup games etc to see this when we fans could see the problems from week one? :THINK:
