NRL announce changes to the rules for 2019

Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

That's the first time I have seen the "Slater Tackle" and I wouldn't be upset if our fullback knocked a winger out of play like that or if an opposing fullback took out one of our wingers the same (except for the disappointment of not scoring)
This is Rugby League folks not tiddleywinks, I understand player welfare and agree with the clamping down on "crusher" tackles etc but let's not sterilise the game
This St Helens Defence is like a lollipopman at Brands Hatch -Ray French BBC TV Challenge Cup 1982
