Here's a snippet: <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div> http://www.theroar.com.au/2009/01/18/an-nf...looks-at-rugby/ The above quote is complete B.S. but there are some interesting quotes in it with regards how rugby is selling itself short. I quite like is thoughts on point scoring: <div class='quotetop'>QUOTE </div> I'd be in favor of something along those lines. Personally, I think rugby league has it's point scoring system that's far superior to Union whereby a try is worth twice that of a penalty (4 points v 2 points) and a converted try is thre times as valuable as a penalty (6 points v 2 points). I'd like to see the possibility of either increasing a try to 7 with a converted try being worth nine points (and keeping penalties and drop goals at the current 3 points) or devaluing a penalty and drop goal to a value of 2 points and not changing the value of ties/converted tries. Either change would have the effect of encouraging attacking rugby over kicking for goal. It's not as though Union is wedded to the present points scoring system since it has been changed numerous times in the past: Date Try Conversion Penalty Dropped-goal Goal from mark 1890â€“1898 1 point 2 points 3 points 3 points - 1899â€“1904 6 points 2 points 3 points 4 points 4 points 1905â€“1947 3 points 2 points 3 points 4 points 3 points 1948â€“1970 3 points 2 points 3 points 3 points 3 points 1971â€“1977 4 points 2 points 3 points 3 points 3 points 1977â€“1991 4 points 2 points 3 points 3 points - 1992â€“present 5 points 2 points 3 points 3 points - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_rugby_union#Scoring Any thoughts? Is it worthwhile exploring the possibility of changing the point scoring structure again and if so, what would you like to see changed?
