Online bookmaker tomwaterhouse is betting that golden point's days are numbered in the National Rugby League but that the NRL is unlikely to change its competition scoring system.

With media reports suggesting more than half of the current NRL club coaches are not in favour of keeping the status quo, tomwaterhouse.com is offering odds of $3 about golden point/goal extra time with full teams still being in operation for the first round of the 2013 NRL competition.

No extra time and a return to the 80-minute draw is the $1.75 favourite with tomwaterhouse.com. Punters can back golden try extra time with full teams at odds of $7, the score at the end of extra time with full teams at $11 and any other extra-time method, including reduced teams, at $21.

"Monday's field goal-a-thon between the Sharks and the Roosters that featured nine misses may have killed golden point," said Tom Waterhouse, Managing Director of tomwaterhouse.com.

"People are resistant to change but there's a growing belief golden point isn't doing rugby league any favours.

"Some commentators are suggesting tweaks to the NRL competition scoring system. Any change for next season - for example, to David Middleton's 4-3-2-1-0 is $4 with tomwaterhouse.com."
