Another hobby horse of mine was and again shown up when Boyd threw the ball over the deadball line with 30 seconds left to play - and Illawarra-George players started to celebrate, knowing they could waste time and not have to restart the match. A kick restart would have given the Tigers a chance to snap a field goal and send the match into extra time, where they had the momentum to win. In my opinion, every time the ball is not in play the clock should stop. I've heard critics of this idea say "but that would make the game too long". My reply: Who says 40 minutes is the right length for each half? . . . and you really only get 30 minutes of football, anyway. or shorten each half to 30 minutes, knowing that time-wasting tactics won't work. This rushing to pack a scrum when it suits you, or deliberate time-wasting is a joke. Your thoughts?
