All-time leading goal kicker Tony Lockett joined Jars & Louie this afternoon on the Rush Hour and addressed the new rule changes. 

Plugga believes it's too early to judge the 6-6-6 rule, but has a big issue with the runner being taken out of the game.


“I dunno about the 6-6-6 it’s probably a bit early to really judge it, but I don’t think it’s made any improvement as yet anyway,” he said.

Lockett believes it is very important that coaches & players can communicate during games and that he'd change it back to how it was. 

“The one that frustrates me is the runner not coming onto the ground.

“I think that’s just ridiculous, coaches need to get messages out to players. I think that’s a silly one - they need to change that one.”
