Once again the boring Rugby World Cup is decided, not by anyone getting the ball across the line, (and in most cases not even trying to), but by every single point being from goal kicking. Honestly, if they want to play a kicking game, why don't they buzz off all the lardy forwards and play a REAL kicking game, soccer? Despite a try being worth 5 points, "This will encourage running, attacking Rugby", yeah, right :roll:, a penalty or drop goal being worth 3 points and a conversion from a try being worth 2 points, teams are more than content to farnackle around, waiting for an infringement of microscopic proportions from the opposition, and reap the resulting points, while not bothering to attack themselves, and stifling any attack from the opposition (admitedly, the role of defence). What to do?? Obviously there needs to be a mental change at administrative level, and a change to the points-scoring system as well to force these lummoxes to try and get the ball over the line (otherwise, as I said, forget the whole deal and just play soccer). So, a penalty kick can only be taken inside the opposition's 25 line, and only yields 1 point. Likewise a drop goal can only be taken inside the opposition's 25 line, and only yields 1 point. A conversion of a try (which stays at 5 points), yields 3 points. So a converted try yields 8 points, which would require 8 penalties, or 8 drop goals to accumulate. Thoughts??? And don't give me this 'game they play in heaven' malarky; everything's perfect in heaven, and Rugby in its present state is anything but!
