    New Global Rapid Rugby laws to increase pressure

    New Western Force defence coach Steve Meehan says Global Rapid Rugby laws will challenge players physically and mentally.
    Changes have been designed to produce a faster game and keep the ball in play longer than under traditional laws.
    “It’s a different game. The changes are quite significant,” Meehan said.

    Apparently that dumb Mungo supporter is not the only one to ponder the significance of the law variations of GRR.

    Why? Because I said League was stripped down? It's not like it's an inaccurate description. Nor was it having a go at anyone.

    Not at all. And no offence taken. This joint thrives on banter - hence the "dumb Mungo" comment. Just referenced you because you commented on the idea I put forward and because it seems I'm not alone.

    You are not a Dumb Mungo shasta - more like an old Mungo.

    My experience is that you never know on the internet. People take offence to the most innocuous things. You never know.

    One of our most valued and rational members, universally respected for his balanced views, took offence that a rugby match got postponed because of an innocuous little thing like a mass shooting of 100 people at prayer. Yup the internet, you just never know

    Dumb Mungo is a tautology in my opinion.

    If I wasn't so dumb I'd probably take a fence to that.
