    It has been going on all year but last week against the Panthers was horrible and this week it looks like its the same thing. But have they removed the flop as a rule, the amount of players that jump in well after the tackle is complete with a player on the ground is crazy

    Agreed. No need for the third player to come in on most occasions.

    They'll both come back soon when it happens more frequently, and whatever crackdown going on lately vanishes.

    Same game same speed nothing has really changed---the odd speed improvement in certain tackles but all this talk about a faster game has been exaggerated all year.

    Teams that are seen to be "bigger and stronger" are given more latitude to slow the play the ball as they give off the perception that they "must" be dominating the tackle.

      Precisely, the NRL can't help but consistently contradict themselves

      If the flop was always penalized Nathan Hindmarsh would have only made 6 legal tackles throughout his career

      It seems mandatory these days.
