    NRL to bin players for tryline penalties in 2018

    NRL players have been warned they will be sin-binned in 2018 if they give away repeated penalties close to the tryline.

    In 2017, 18 per cent of penalties were conceded within 10 metres of the goal line, despite only 10 per cent of play-the-balls being made in the area.

    Sin bins more than doubled to 43, but the new-look competition committee, including coaches Ivan Cleary and Paul Green and Greg Inglis — decided that should continue for penalties, given away while trying to slow the game down near the tryline.

    “No team wants to be left a player short for 10 minutes so, if referees start using the bin, teams will be less willing to give away penalties,” Cleary said.

    Deliberate and dangerous foul play offences will also be sin-binned, while referees will be urged to penalise for incorrect play-the-balls if no effort is made by players to use their foot.

    Cleary, Green and Inglis are joined by referees’ boss Tony Archer, Darren Lockyer, John Lang, John Grant, Todd Greenberg, Wayne Pearce and Jason King on the competition committee.

    What a crock of BS!

    Foot on the ball has been the rule for ages, just Archer's Angels choose to ignore it. They have the sin bin option available right now for repeated and/or professional fouls. Deliberate and dangerous foul play deserves one punishment ~ send off! But the Angels don
    't have the guts referring everything on reports.

    It gets annoying when they mention that foot on the ball thing every year. If you're gonna enforce it, then enforce it, don't call a couple players up on it for a few weeks, then just stop because it's so widespread. Be tough on it, if they don't play it properly, keep penalizing them till they stop.

    And I was just gonna mention that Member, they've always had the option to sin bin players for repeated penalties in the 10 metre zone, they even warn teams all the time. Hopefully by making a point of it now as they have, it encourages refs to use it.

    No players touch the ball with their foot anymore, it’s a rarity to see. All it is, is just them rolling it to the hooker like tunnel ball or something. The system is flawed, like Josh said if they want to crack down on something then do so.
