There’s been a bit of a stir about the new ruck rules in recent weeks which has led to some baffling (I mean, important) free kicks. The new ruck rules regarding ‘no 3rd man up’ have the footy world divided.
In theory I believe it’s the right call. Without it, I see the Ruckman in danger of becoming obsolete in our fast-paced game of AFL. I still see a place for them in our great game. I fear a contest of an Under 10’s level where 30 guys just chase the ball around the park. This way the Ruckmen are still protected (and necessary).
What do you make of the ruck rules? Care to let us know?
