Does Golden Point get the right re­sult?

Huddersfield Daily Examiner - - FRONT PAGE -

GOLDEN Point ex­tra time will be in use for the first time in Su­per League in 2019.

It means that any reg­u­lar-sea­son game that ends in a draw will have two, five-minute pe­ri­ods where the first point scored ends the game.

It has been in­tro­duced to en­sure all games have a re­sult and is a pop­u­lar rule in Aus­tralia in the NRL, where it has been in force since 2003.

Since Golden Point is a new thing in Eng­land, we asked three peo­ple who know ex­actly what this rule is all about and whether it will be a good ad­di­tion to Su­per League.
