    Why would they do that? Then all the umpires would go and have a bet and end the game when their team was in front. They would essentially be deciding who got to win rather than the clock.

    I am of the opinion that the Umpires could review when the ball is delayed. Out of court etc. They seem to love the whistle anyway.

    The onus is on the time keeper to stop the time as near as practical to the whistle. One job.

    The reality is there is time lost. That’s the discretion of the Umpire. Long before the last minute.

    What do you mean? The game ends on the umpire’s whistle, not on anything else.

    Didn’t the rule used to be that once there was one minute left on the clock, an umpire could end the game whenever they wanted? This was a few years ago now though

    What the hell??? No, that was never the rule. The time played out exactly as it always has, but it’s just that the stadium and TV clock stopped at the minute mark so that the timekeeper and the umpires were the only ones who knew for certain when time was up.

    Yep that’s for CWGs usually.
