With 2 games left to play, round 16, 2021:

- 3 absolute drubbings to nil;
- 1 absolute drubbing to 6, and;
- 2 relatively low scoring games decided by a field goal.

And special mention to the Storm scoring more points than any other team ever has up until this point in a season (another fun fact: at 584 points, it’s already 130 more than we’ve scored in seasons 2020 and ‘21 combined…).

PVL must be so proud. What a spectacle the NRL has become… 🙄

Yeah well they've crippled the defensive side of the sport with poorly thought out rules and over the top officiating, it's no wonder the points are being racked up and the games have become 'samey' and dull as dog shit.

Yep it's a disaster. I used to watch 2-4 games a week now I watch the Broncos game and just the start of other games and as soon as a team goes on a run i switch off. If the NRL wants to keep the 6 again it just needs to be used when teams are attacking in the opponents 20 m and for all other infringements it should revert back to a penalty. The 6 again instead of giving teams more attacking options just rewards the better teams who kick to a corner then blatantly give away a 6 again on the first tackle to allow their defence to reset. Contrast this with a penalty which allows the resulting kick for touch to move the play 20-30 meters upfield. The better teams will still win but without the one way traffic score blow out that causes fans to switch off.

If PVL wants to improve the game as a spectacle just enforce the held call in a tackle. When held is called you roll away immediately not wait 1-2 seconds till the ref either calls out the player by name or calls clear. If in doubt get the players to watch any game from the 80's or 90's.

The biggest and quickest fix is just to get rid of 6 again altogether. I’d start watching again with that one change but it is the one thing that won’t change because it is the idiot in charge’s baby and he’s too stubborn to admit he was wrong.

While I'm not expecting miracles, I'm keen to see Kobe start at lock today. Everything I've seen of him so far he looks like an absolute never give up hard edge all effort player who's always up for the fight.

Hopefully rips in 100 mile an hour.

I'm on your side here and had a negative view immediately after the first 6 again was given. I think I started bellowing within seconds of the rule being implemented for the first time. I knew it would immediately have a terrible impact mainly because it gave refs total control of a game. I didn't foresee the other long term effects.

Watch a different game
Think we'll go okay today. Hope my favourite forward is feeling good and his timing is okay. Big Rhys hasn't played for a while with that leg infection and the bye in there too. Looking forward to this game. Even had a bet coupled with Souths.
