I much prefer to watch a flowing, clinical running rugby game but, if a team can capitilise on forcing errors and turning them into points, good for them.
I'd much rather see Penalties take a dip in the points they are worth though.
But the thing is, when a team has a lot of momentum and they get a penalty they instead go for goal, I think only go for penalty goal if they are not going through the defense and the points are nearly guaranteed(a close shot)
