So I've watched Canterbury's two games so far this year (tracking Nathan Earle), and was wondering what you guys have thought of the new laws that are being trialled? I know the NPC is normally a very fast, flowing competition, but it has struck me that the rucks have been cleaned up massively with the new laws. It's not that there's no competition, but that the competition doesn't really slow the ball down that much - players either steal the ball or kick it out of the ruck immediately, rather than a 5+ second wrestling battle before the outcome. So there are just as many turnovers, but the ball is in play far more because the ball doesn't stay in the ruck for very long at all. Anyone else seeing the same thing, or just me?
