Have your say: Should ‘golden try’ be brought into Super League?

The Rugby Football League are considering bringing golden point into Super League next season but we want to know if you think golden try would be a better idea.

It has been reported that the RFL are contemplating introducing golden point extra time into Super League, Championship and League 1 next season.

It would follow in the footsteps of Australia’s National Rugby League, where games go into extra-time if the score is tied after 80 minutes.

Plenty of people have voiced their opinions on the proposal on social media, but Castleford Tigers coach Daryl Powell would like to see ‘golden try’ introduced rather than golden point.

He told Yorkshire Evening Post: “If you have golden point, you know it’s going to be bang, bang, bang, bang.

“You have seven tackles and you know you’re going to be within shooting distance and it’s just a drop-goal shootout, but a golden try might create a little bit more.

“I think Gary Hetherington brought it up as I understand it. It would be a really good idea if you were going to do it as you’d see positive play.

“That would be an interesting move forward, but whether they do or not, I’m not sure.”

Other people there shouldn’t be any golden point or golden try whatsoever, deeming them ‘silly gimmicks’.

Some people would like to see golden point introduced so there will always be a winner, while others think points deserved to be split sometimes.
