    Plenty of people have differing views on this but I wanted to get everyone's view on it

    Should golden point be scrapped ?? Should we switch to Golden Try ?? Should we have extra time followed by golden point ??

    Obviously we need a result in finals and I think they have got that right with Extra Time followed by Golden Point if the scores are still level

    Personally I don't see what's wrong with a point each, I hate golden point

    Vote away in our poll and post your thoughts !!

    I voted for giving each a point at the end of the 80m if it's a draw.

    The NHL give each team a point each for the draw, and then they play extra time for an additional point. Could increase the points for a win to 3. Then it is still giving 3 points per round per team, just a point each for a draw and if a team can score in extra time they get the extra point, if not nobody gets it.

    Otherwise I dunno. Leaving it at a point each after 80 leaves both teams leaving the ground kind of feeling like they lost. I like the excitement of golden point personally, or golden try even.

    I hate golden point, whats the point of it when the rules that have been enforced for 80 mins get thrown out the window.

    A point each after 80 is fine

    Not last night they weren't. Penalty given right in front of the posts for marker not standing square and game over.

    I hate golden point, there is no way a team who has managed to be level after 80 should walk away with nothing.

    Finals, Origin, sure. But not rounds 1-26. The single point for a draw would also sort out the eight to a larger extent, without having to worry about for-and-against etc.

    without golden point the Knights would have been in the same position tigers are today in round 1 in that we had a win robbed by a poor call so I don't think it makes a difference if it's their or not other than if gives us an extra 10 minutes every now and again

    Easy give both teams 1 point. If there’s a winner they get the extra.

    In round games I believe that 80 minutes is enough 1 point each , there is 20 odd rounds to sort it out, finals is a different issue.
    Was talking with the boys after Manly game and one of them recorded an increase in Klm tracked of over 27% of his normal game mileage, this must eventually have an effect on the players

    I agree member, the problem is that by the letter of the rule book given the way the game is currently played , there could be a penalty at every PTB , unfortunately it is at the discretion of the Refs when and where and to whom they choose to extend favour

    Yes it does, the clubs that lose have to use discretion in their assessment of the refs.... so its a weekly occurrence :brickwall:

    Share the points after 80 in regular season games, additional 10min each way in finals and if still drawn replay mid week.
