NRL Bunker's Jurisdiction Slashed For 2017

The NRL's controversial bunker system will no longer be used to determine knock-ons in general play or be called upon for 40-20 calls in 2017.

After consultation with a number of stakeholders, including coaches and the competition committee the centralised officiating booth will only rule on point-scoring plays, in-goal restarts and reportable fouls.

"As we all become more accustomed to the incredible technology that we have at our disposal, we will always look to refine the system to ensure that the bunker serves the fans, the clubs and players in the best way possible," NRL head of football Brian Canavan said.
