NRL flies the white flag on wrestling

No Liatrevlis- Bill Harrigan is considered by almost every player and commentator to be the finest referee this game has produced. Yes he has a big ego but one thing is certain: he wouldn't have put up with the kind of crap Mick Ennis was throwing at the ref the other night. And he wouldn't be afraid to implement my suggestion on the 'held' call. Give me a strong-willed referee any day of the week. Ask most players and they'll tell you they liked playing under Harrigan.

Not true Johnnyball. I'm not suggesting we have to go back to Super League, where it was 5 dummy half runs and a try every set. The players don't have to sprint off the tackled player but they do have to begin MOVING. That's the difference. The ball carrier would also have to stand up and play the ball- something that didn't happen in Super League; you had guys basically playing the ball off the ground.
