The 41-year-old, who has coached in Super League with Catalans Dragons, gave his thumbs up to the changes, which he believes have improved the competition. “I think the shot clock and the eight interchanges are a big improvement, particularly around that work ethic around the middle and the ability to move the ball,” Robinson said. “We’ve seen some points scored in the first two rounds but we’ve also seen some tight games. I think the adaptability of the competition in a short space of time has been really good. It’s really pleasing. “Are you allowed to be positive in rugby league? I think everyone would be happy with the product in the first two rounds.”
