Twitter Talk: Majority of fans against golden point rule

We have had two golden point extra-times in Super League so far this year, but the majority of spectators are not in favour of the concept. 

The top-flight introduced golden point, shot clocks and several other changes to the laws of the game ahead of the 2019 season.

The changes were initially made to introduce more speed and on-field drama for spectators and television viewers to enjoy.

Two five-minute periods at the end of the 80 minutes are given if the match results in a draw at the end of regular time.

The first golden point extra-time in Super League came in round three as Marc Sneyd added a field goal to snatch a 23-22 win for Hull FC away at Wigan Warriors.

And the second came in round eight last Thursday as Brad Dwyer nailed a long-range drop goal to clinch a 21-20 win for Leeds Rhinos against Castleford Tigers at Emerald Headingley.

We ran a poll on Tuesday, which asked the fans ‘does Golden Point hold good value in Super League?‘ and with 307 voting in it at the time of writing, 71% say ‘no, a draw is a fair result’.
