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’.
Does Golden Point hold good value in Super League? Here is how you reacted on Twitter:
No, the draws so far have been dramatic enough and each team deserved something form the game. Play offs and cup matches it’s worth it

No. What’s wrong with a draw in a league match. Leave golden point for knock out games.

No. Be better if it was sudden death on the next try, but not a kick. But I'd prefer if we didn't have it at all. I've seen many an entertaining draw.

No if both teams have battled it out for a draw they deserve something from the game!

NOPE! Nowt wrong with a draw!

Change the game to; 3 points for a win, 1 for a draw, 0 for a loss
Golden point – both teams get 1 point for the draw, if a team wins in extra time they get an extra "golden point"

The golden point should be for the extra point.

Hate it. It serves no purpose. To say teams play extra time & then one team won't even have possession. It's stupid ???

It's a silly gimmick that turns a game of skill into drop goal roulette. Should scrap it for Cup Games never mind brining it into the league.

I like it, only negative off it is if you’re on the wrong end of it, can be heartbreaking, but adds extra tension in the match
