MASTER COACH URGES KICK-OFF RETHINK
Seven of the eight games last weekend finished with blow-out scores and the trend for runaway wins in the post-COVID NRL has officials very concerned.
But former Kangaroos and premiership-winning coach Tim Sheens has a simple solution that will fix the problem.
“Just make the team that scores kick off,” Sheens told Wide World of Sports.
"In most major sports, the team that concedes points gets next use of the ball - except league.
"The game is so fast now that if a team scores and gets the ball back, they often get on a roll and the defending team can’t stop it.
“Giving them next crack in attack would go a long way towards fixing that.”
Yes - I think it is a good idea and one fans have talked about for sometime
