The captain's challenge system will be introduced in the upcoming NRLAllStars games. Here's how it will work 👀 👉

The captain may not challenge discretionary penalties such as ruck and marker infringements or 10-metre offside penalties.This means as long as there is a structured restart they can challenge any knock-on or stripping calls, chargedowns, players making contact with the touch line or in-goal contact that determined whether a drop-out or 20-metre restart was awarded.

However, if he believes an opponent knocked on and the officials missed it, he cannot make a challenge during the run of play. The NRL has stated that under the captain's challenge system, a steal will only be deemed to have occurred if a player"demonstrates the intent to strip the ball", and that incidental contact with the ball that occurs while making contact with the player will not be classified as stealing the ball.

The Bunker will also potentially be required to rule for the first time on when players peel off a multi-player tackle to allow a one-on-one steal to occur.Once a challenge is initiated, the Bunker will rule on whether the original call should be overturned. If it is, the challenging team will retain their challenge. If it’s not overturned, they will lose it and be unable to challenge for the remainder of the match.

How bout we go back to the 90’s and refs make calls themselves, they are human they make mistakes.

Good luck

edging closer to NFL and 'flags' on the play etc 3 hrs for an 80 min game if that happens.

Forward passes still being ignored? That's the NRL alright.

Today Show suffers lowest ratings for 2020Morning news show Today has suffered its lowest TV ratings for 2020, despite the return of Nine’s golden boy Karl Stefanovic. It's because no one watches free tv anymore it's dead I think Karl and Ally have been great. More of a comment on multiple streaming services rather than poor hosts Morning Breakfast Shows especially Nine are so full of Ad breaks it would be interesting to see how much timethey are actually on air.
