    Default 6 again - Referee assistance

    Leeds are getting some advice from Ben Failure on the new 6 again rule

    https://www.seriousaboutrl.com/agar-...in-rule-31561/

    I assume Robert Hicks will be continuing his assistance/14th man role for Warrington

    If we continue the wrestling tactics that we saw prior to the lockdown, I can see loads of "6 Against" going against us. It'll be so much easier for the ref to call 6 Again rather than award a penalty, which comes under scrutiny of the cameras.

    This seemed to happen in the NRL for the 1st few weeks then either refs got more lenient or the players didn't hold down as much but in the last few matches I've seen there didn't seem many repeat sets

    I do like this rule but from a Saints perspective Im a little worried.

    If I remember correctly, we gave quite a few penalties away at the ruck before the break. If that continues, we could be back peddling a fair bit.

    My mind could be playing tricks on me as its been a long few months. Im sure someone on here will have the penalty stats

    Last season we were one of the best teams (top 3) for not giving penalties away, this season we we are around midway, over the last 10 years we have been pretty good. Usually we get pinged more more technical infringements than foul play, the games so far this season we have not had a settled team and perhaps we have given a few more penalties than normal. We are still very much a team with mobility in the pack once they gain match fitness I think they will adapt better than most other teams.

    The problem will be the usual inconsistency of the referees.

    I'm hoping this rule change will bring different tactics from Woolf, otherwise we are doomed.

    Both points worry me.

    It's ok rather than bring in Ben Thaler, we are bringing in Joe Rogan and Conor Mcgregor.

    These new rules will either make or break KW.

    Either he will have developed a model in this period and really kick on or he will do a Royce.
    I can't see anything in between.

    How Roby copes with the faster game and how A Smith steps up will also be key.

    I think with Roby/Smith. They need to be constantly on at the ref for the repeat sets.

    We both know fine well other teams will be doing the exact same.

    I’m hopeful that they’ll suit us once the season gets going and players get match fit. I think the development of some of the younger forwards will be important, you’d think that the quicker game and extra space around the ruck will really suit the likes of Lees and Bentley, with Thompson gone we’re going to need those two to be productive and put some consistent performances in.

    It’s tailor made for the outside backs really, if we can keep them fit Makinson, Naquima, Percival and Grace running at some of those knackered forwards on kick returns and the like with the speed and footwork that they’ve got could be brilliant to watch. Hopefully we’ll be able to get them some early ball as well and give them some 1 v 1’s. When Grace and Percival were injured earlier on in the season it really hurt us and showed how important they are to the team.

    Again though looking at the NRL, there’s been a fair few injuries across the league so we’re probably going to need players outside of the ‘best 17’ to step up too.
