I hope so, brian m. I hope they go the whole hog, so that Union, in effect, becomes League, and thus disappears. Union is fundamentally flawed. The only way to get any sort of watchable play is by ignoring the rules, particularly with regard to blocking, offside and playing the ball on the ground after being tackled. This is clearly why law changes are happening.

I played Union for my school for 7 years, and for some time wondered why our school referees blew the whistle every other second, but the refs on TV didn't. When I looked a bit closer at the TV games, I realised the players were committing just as many offences as me and my mates at school, but the refs weren't penalising them, obviously because the refs on TV knew that if they kept on stopping the game every second, people would soon switch off.
