Shot clock

Post by innsaneink » Fri 20 Jul, 2018 6:38 pm

What the hells the shot clock @ scrums for?

Why is it called shot clock and not scrum clock?

Is it a rule I've never seen applied... Is there a penalty for doing something?

Meant to be a penalty for delaying the game but it is never called. I’ve seen the clock run out of time a couple of times and they just play the scrum anyway.

Was introduced to reduce time at stoppages but now everyone stands around for 40 seconds

Yeh thought it was a bludge clock.
Interesting they display the drop out clock on tv but not scrum one... I guess because they know it's a gimmick nothing more

Think the warriors got pinged last week for not taking a drop out in time
