Merrin going to the sin bin takes the longest angle to the sideline he could then walked up the sideline before eventually getting off the field.

Panthers looking a lot more organised. Tigers either a lot of hospital passes to their halves.

I remember Harawira-Naera did the exact same thing against us last year. Nothing more frustrating as an opposition fan, just get off!
It's become a real trend, they'll implement a shot clock (another one!) for it soon I bet.

Pretty simple really. 30 seconds to get off or the yellow cards turns into a red or a automatic missed suspension next week.

Think it was Alex Twal last night did the same. Looked like he was getting off at a good pace then told by the bench staff to take his time. Good delay tactic for teams but annoying for fans...

one of the commentators brought up the injury thing as well, when did it happen that the game stops for any injury on the field. I know it used to be that you only stopped if the player was down an unable to get to the sideline and the action was heading at him.
