NRL to announce interchange changes

A reduction in the number of interchanges in NRL matches is expected to be announced next month, according to NRL head of football Todd Greenberg.

On the same day the governing body released a proposal to scrap the June 30 deadline for players reneging on deals, Greenberg admitted the NRL is also on the verge of making changes to the interchange system.

Teams are currently allowed 10 interchanges per game but after recent talks with sports professor Kevin Norton, Greenberg said that could be reduced to six or eight.

Player health concerns lead to a review of NRL interchange rules

The NRL plans to lower the number of allowed interchanges from 10 to eight, while introducing a shot clock for scrums and kicks, such as line dropouts, yet persistent breaches of the concussion rule will negate the code's drive towards producing attrition late in games.

Tackle One - Eight-man interchange confirmed

The NRL has decided to take a less drastic approach to speeding-up the game, opting for an eight-man interchange model from next season. While there's been calls for the number of bench rotations to be slashed from 10 to six, we can reveal concerns over a global disparity have convinced the NRL to be more conservative. The interchange is currently set at 12 for Test matches, and power brokers felt half that number would have created too wide a gulf between Australia and other league-playing nations.

The article mentions there will be measures to ensure the ball will remain in play for longer..
An extra tackle from scrums perhaps? That might negate the purpose of having the extra tackle from balls kicked dead though
Would have won Boogs - 2016

It would be more interesting if they came up with ways to have some actual competition for the ball more often. No raking the ball back in play the balls, scrums fed in second row, blockers on kicks, running guys off the line of kicks, tackling the kicker late so he can't chase, no stripping of ball, accidental contact in a tackle is now playing at the ball. Fair dinkum the ball is near impossible to loose...

Scrums are the biggest joke. They may as well have the ref draw a circle on the field, have 7 players each side stand inside it and say "No one is allowed out of the circle until I call OUT" and have the ref pass it to first receiver. Yesterday the scrum was fed while the entire front row was standing up right. They let it go.
Gina Riley: Oh, come on, John. That’s a bit old hat, the corrupt IOC delegate.
John Clarke: Old hat? Gina, in the scientific world when they see that something is happening again and again and again, repeatedly, they don’t call it old hat. They call it a pattern.

NRL to introduce a shot clock and eight interchanges in 2016

A shot clock for goal-line drop outs and scrums is set to be introduced in the NRL next season to coincide with a reduction in the number of interchanges from 10 to eight.

NRL head of football Todd Greenberg confirmed the introduction of a shot clock formed part of his recommendation to the ARL Commission on changes to the interchange rule during a fan forum in Brisbane at which he and referees boss Tony Archer also revealed:

"Every text message, phone call and email Tony gets from a coach is logged so I know them 1 to 16 in terms of who contacts him the most," Greenberg said.

Fairfax Media understands that Parramatta coach Brad Arthur has made the most complaints to Archer this season but Greenberg refused to provide details of the list, saying: "All I can tell you is that it is in no way reflective of the competition ladder. In fact, it probably looks more like the reverse."

They have this air of haut and arrogance, which is not justified by their performance. The attitude is, "they're just whinging because they're losing". And as we all now know, it's not surprising that the "underdog" teams are complaining more... It's because that is one of the classic unconscious biases of sports officials.

That article IS arrogant. Makes my blood boil some of the things they say in there. It's like a teenager that has a justification for everything they do after the fact.

I actually thought about attending the Brísbane one when the invitation went out, but wasn't sure if I'd be in Brisbane at the time. Not sure whether I glad I didn't because I would've got angry, or wish I had because I would've got angry. Haha

New NRL interchange rules set to produce more footballers and less athletes

​Hookers are set to play 80 minutes, front rowers may need to be five kilograms lighter and utility players will become more valuable.

Those are expected to be the major changes caused by the NRL's decision to reduce the number of interchanges from 10 to eight per team next season and introduce a shot clock for goal line dropouts and scrums.

The move is designed to encourage a more entertaining and attacking style of play, and should result in more emphasis on the development of footballers rather than athletes.

The NRL wants the ARL Commission approve a shot-clock for drop outs

Happy with the shotclock change. Waiting 60-90 seconds for every scrum to pack is making it feel more and more like NFL.

Interchange: Impact on recruitment

The Roosters are the team best positioned to make the smoothest adjustment to playing under the new system of eight interchanges per game in 2016 according to Panthers recruitment chief Mark Hughes.

The NRL announced on Wednesday afternoon that following a detailed review of the current interchange system the number of interchanges will be reduced from 10 to eight and a 'shot clock' introduced for drop-outs and scrums from next season.

NRL shot clock could be trialled as early as this year as game reduces interchange to eight

The NRL could trial its shot clock as early as this season with a time cap on scrums and dropouts to be introduced next season along with a reduced interchange.

The NRL announced the interchange would be cut to eight next season and a shot clock will be introduced to limit time wasting on dropouts and scrums.

Brisbane coach Wayne Bennett says referees should be on shot-clock as well as players

RUGBY league’s greatest coach Wayne Bennett has called for the NRL to impose a shot-clock on video referees to stop technological advancements slowing the game down.

Bennett backed the NRL’s decision to reduce interchanges and introduce a shot-clock for dropouts and scrums _ but he insists the time-limit must be extended to match officials in the video box.

I'm glad to see the interchange reduce to 8. Hopefully just a pit stop on the way to further reduction. Although I don't necessarily agree with the comment that it will introduce more footballers and less athletes. To last longer minutes the players will need MORE athletic-aerobic ability. Still, it should enable the more skillful players to benefit until the Club squads adjust.

Shot clocks are a good idea. I mentioned some years ago about having a shot clock to release a tackled player. The ref calls held and the clock begins and the defenders have to get off the player in possession. No more than 3 seconds and if a defender has a hand on the player in possession he is penalised. Does it twice and the player is binned for 5 minutes on a first offence and 10 minutes thereafter. That should speed up the play the ball and lead to a cull of the 'obstructionists' at some clubs.
