Play The Ball
Plus to be perfectly honest I'd like to see it get much harder for kids to make it into the NRL - it has become far too easy. If a player isn't committed enough to move away from home, they shouldn't be in the sport. The sport shouldn't change the rules to make it easier for players - that breeds a poor attitude. I want to see kids bust their ass for 2-4 seasons playing age-grade footy or NSW/Qld Cup level before getting a call-up. With NRL clubs spending up big on the first half of their first grade rosters, too many kids have been given a chance to play first grade because it makes financial sense for the clubs rather than that kid earning his spot. Too much talent has headed overseas or to other codes as a result of the current system. These proposed changes will make for a stronger NRL and I'm all for that.
