NRL considers change to golden point


//

The NRL is considering giving losing teams in golden point one competition point after growing calls from clubs who feel hard done by after finishing all square after 80 minutes.

The issue has been raised after a huge weekend of golden point games with several pressure field goals separating teams in the dying moments leaving the losing sides with nothing after finishing level at full-time, which would have constituted one competition point in the past.

Another suggestion that’s being discussed is applying the AFL’s system of four competition points for a win, which would mean the winners get three points and the losers one.

The NRL’s Head of Football Graham Annesley told News Corp the game’s governing body is assessing its options.

 “We’re open to discussions on these sort of issues,” Annesley said.

“Although suggestions of this type have been raised in the past, the competition committee has to date not felt there is sufficient need to change the current golden point system.

“However, as administrators, we do have a responsibility to constantly review our competition rules and consider innovative ways to enhance public interest in the premiership.

“Just because an idea has been rejected in the past, doesn’t mean it can’t be revisited as the game continues to evolve.

“The Competition Committee meets again at the end of the season to review all aspects of the on-field game in 2019 in preparation for 2020 and beyond.”
