Two rule changes have been made that are simply unnecessary and and are wrecking the game.
The first is the new strip rule which is being tactically manipulated where players release in a tackle just before the strip occurs.
The 2nd players signing with other clubs after mid season (June 30) should simply not be allowed. How would you feel if you where the player who misses a grand final to bring in a player who has not even been a part of the team.
Both of these fail the pub test and should be stopped asap. To men Penrith no longer deserve to win as any win they have comes with a bad smell?
