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)

I can't really argue with that.

Go for corner unless the 3 points are either easy points, or substantial (like the 3 takes you in the lead near the end or to a 2 score lead to secure victory etc).

Ireland did just that against us, went for the posts 3 times. Fiji against us refused to take 3 points twice, even when one of them was literally right under the posts. Found that quite nice of them, they could of easily gone 'F U you are not nilling us'

Yeah some teams dont use common sense, the scots,english and argies always go for 50m goals even when losing. they rarely pay off
