The Saints game on ANZAC Day and last nights game again makes me ask why teams don't use short kick offs more. At the moment the only time they seem to be used is when teams are behind in the las ten minutes and desperate to score. Isn't league all about possession and scoring? When short kickoffs are used the attacking team gains possession probably 40% of the time. They are then 30/35 metres out from the line and on the attack. If it doesn't work you have given up about 15 metres in territory. I'm not saying use it all the time but don't leave it until you are desperate. The game needs more variety to add excitement. Another idea raised years ago was giving teams the option of two more tackles if they don't kick on the last tackle. If they take it they can't kick on the last(8th) tackle. Again it would add variety and unpredictabilty. Also all free kicks in you own 30 meters that are awarded near the side line should be taken in 10 meters. There is little advantage in getting a penalty right on the sideline in your own red zone especially if it is on the first couple of tackles. Any thoughts?
