One NRL rule Super League needs to introduce in 2023

So, 2023 has begun and the Super League season is just weeks away as the latest chapter of rugby league is written.

Fans could not be more excited. For rugby league supporters, the New Year is like the beginning of advent and the build up towards Christmas.

It is set to be an amazing season with some interesting stories already unfolding.

Jake Connor is back with Huddersfield Giants after six years with Hull FC who have welcomed Tony Smith to the club in 2023 after he left rivals Hull KR.

They themselves have a new coach in Willie Peters and have made some major signings. So have Warrington Wolves and Leigh Leopards after one fended off relegation whilst the other earned promotion.

It should be a fascinating season in 2023 but there has already been a discussion about changes that could happen to the rules that could make our great game and our even better competition even superior.

According to Rugby League Live yesterday, the green card for injuries is to become a lot more prominent.

Meanwhile calls have been made that Super League should look to introduce the captain’s challenge though this seems unlikely with the inability to have video referees at every game.

This is one NRL which will not be introduced because of the nature of not having the video referee at every game.

However one other rule that made an appearance at the World Cup was the 18th man rule. This rule allows teams to name an 18th man on the bench who will only be used in the event that the side loses three players to failed head injury assessments to lessen the impact of these injuries, which are likely to be a result of foul play, upon any side.
