Coburg coach Leigh Adams says the new rules being trialed in his side’s game against Werribee in the VFL haven’t had much of an impact on the game.
The AFL is trialing a 6-6-6 set up at stoppages, ensuring six players are in each third of the ground, and a goal square that is twice as long as it is now.
Adams was interviewed on Channel 7’s coverage of the game at Coburg’s Piranha Park and said the actual effect of the new rules on the game have been negligible.
“It’s been nice to see a couple of big torps down the middle with the wind,” Adams said.
“But yeah I don’t think it’s had a big impact on the game this far.”
One kick-out from Werribee’s Nick Coughlan made it all the way to the centre square:
Gary Ablett could have ended Richmond’s MCG streak last night, but his shot faded late.
