NRL to scrap golden point for finals

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 31/05/2016 Steve Zemek

The NRL is preparing to scrap golden point for finals games, after the powerful competition committee on Tuesday approved the introduction of extra time.

The recommendation must now be rubber-stamped at the next meeting of the ARL Commission but is expected to be introduced this year.

Under the rule change, five minutes of extra time will be played each way, with the game to go to golden point if the scores are still deadlocked.
