    But it wont because play will be back on. The game wont be paused for the same period while they deliberate.

    Yeah if they can just make a decision with the knowledge it will be scrutinized immediately that should facilitate quick resumption of play.

    The downside i think is that it may lead to more red cards.

    Must be some way they can utilise the dickhead subs warming up in the goddamn in-goal area for the entire bloody match. They are the rugby equivalent of walking around the office holding a piece of paper so it looks like you're busy and shouldnt be fired come the next round of "restructuring".
    zer0 and Derpus like this.

    Except that now everyone stands around with their hands on their hips while the referee, TMO and ARs all look at endless replays on the big screen.

    Agreed.
    I have long thought that the goal-line warm ups will see a massive intervention by those reserves that ruins a game.
    It may be a premature celebratory hug before the ball is touched down for a try, or a reactive interference against an opponent, or just accidentally getting in the way of play.
    Hi viz vests won't prevent human nature from stuffing up a good game.
