    And now teams are happier conceding PKs cos they become cheap relative to a try (or try+conversion). History shows multiple YCs at any time are an option some refs are not happy making, so PKs become MORE prevalent potentially.

    Only if it goes over, and if close square box signal can be used, will only take 2 secs to look.

    Where the ball touches the ground before it's kicked determines where it is, on a line invokes the lower points.

    Scrum option offered for all misses.

    Surely on a line means that the laws of the game already state where the ball / player is?

    How about banning the DG attempt in from your own half. and any attempt from further than the opponents 10 mtr line is a scrum back.
    The tenet that a referee is the sole arbiter of fact and law, allows me to be wrong, not stupid.

    I don't see any value in complex rules about where and when etc you can take DGs. That simply generates grey areas and argument.

    Just reduce the value and eliminate the exemption. Then let's see how that works.

    Now we're playing silly-billies, why not restrict DKs to outside the 15m lines.

    . . . . and to Robert's list could be added, from your goal-line you win the game.
