EXCLUSIVE: RFL To Allow Forward Passes

EXCLUSIVE: RFL To Allow Forward Passes

Rugby League Monday 1 Apr 2013 8:59am

The Rugby Football League is to finally allow Forward Passes in our sport.

For many years it's been near impossible for the referee or touch judges to make a decision on a forward pass, with less than 10% of forward passes actually spotted.

Suggested GPS technology to track the path of the ball is too expensive and as Phil Clarke tells us every game, the Sky cameras angle affects the ability to truly see if its a forward pass or not. From one camera it could appear to be a forward pass, but on another the ball could appear to travel backwards.

So the RFL have decided to scrap the ageing rule and allow players to pass the ball forward.

Our Rugby League insider, Eddie Anstevo had this to say "I think it's a great idea. Basically forward passes happen each game and are never spotted, so why waste the referees time, you might as well allow them."

We agree with Eddie and look forward to the games today without chants of "FORWARD!" coming from the stands.

We also understand that Leeds Rhinos and Wigan Warriors are delighted with this decision.
