Re: If I wanted to watch Rugby League, I'd watch Rugby League

With the goalline dropout law, if the ball is kicked into the try area and dotted down by the defending side, instead of a 22m dropout they will now have one from the tryline. It also means that if the ball is held up over the line in the act of scoring, instead of a five-metre scrum to the attacki...

I like the drop-out.
