    Why not .......-

    The ball goes out of play......Time off......No time wasters,
    No getting ripped off watching goal kickers placing ball,
    i reckon we lose about 3-4 mins game time watching nothing.
    Ball out ,TIME OFF ::

    I agree, dead ball should be time off.

    It's Toddy's new rule for 2014. There is automatic time off in the last 5 minutes, but only for between the conversion kick and the kickoff. It's half baked. If they are going to have automatic time off It should be time off between the try being awarded and the kickoff. Plus all the other things that can waste time the last 5 minutes like taking penalty shots at goal or kicking into touch or over the deadball line.

    Todd thinks the last 5 minutes should be treated differently to the other 75 minutes. He is an utter dill.

    The Panthers took an eternity on EVERY restart today. For Jamie Meoward to be blowing up about the time off in the last minute is a joke.

    Too harsh. Three referees is a great idea. :-/

    With the second last try time wasn't called off until after Killer had the shot. With the last try Tom went over right on 79.00 minutes. Why was time called off before Killer had the kick. I thought the league allowed 90 secs. Seems to be different rues in the last minute.

    I read somewhere recently that there is actually only 52 minutes play per NRL game when stoppages are taken out - I suspect that's only slightly less than the time for ads during Nine's coverage.

    NRL's own website doesn't even know how Toddy's time off rule works! It's only from 75th minute and only from after the conversion and when the kick off is taken. They also forgot that Penrith were in the same situation against Storm earlier in the year and got a penalty kick at goal after a short kick off to try to win the game. The kick missed.

    Come on boys we all know Penrith only wanted the last try checked so it would stop the clock.

    soward partly has himself & his team mates to blame for running out of time.
    when hasson scored in the 64th minute lyon had kicked the goal & almost reached the half way line(jogging) before any penrith player left the in goal. they ambled back & stuffed around wasting plenty of time.
    same thing happened after lyon scored in the 77th minute but killer ran straight up to the ref to ensure they called time off, even then valuable seconds were wasted.

    What a knob, whinged all game. They got the rub of the green all day and still whined. They took their sweet time on every restart particularly when it suited them.

    I understand where he is coming from but he carried on like a bad a curry

    Honestly this time off and us getting ripped off is the catalyst for the stupid rule changes we are seeing.

    Its fine, there are bigger problems than the time it takes to restart play, gamesmanship is part of the game, always has been part of the game and someone that can play the ref and the clock is an assett to every team.

    If we keep going down this path, soon we are going to have more refs than players

    Even after one of the Penrith players was put on report for a dangerous throw on Kingdog.....Soward was still asking if they were going to get the penalty. The guy is a first class sook when it goes against him.

    As for the use, or non-use as the case was, of the video ref for the final try....the NRL are victims of their own creation there. So many times we see tries sent upstairs for such silly things as checking the grounding, even if its clear as day that a try has been scored, that some coaches now pretty much expect the video ref to be used for every single try that is scored.....and when the video isn't used they seem to blow up about the unfairness of it all, especially in situations like we saw yesterday at Brookie.
