- Steve Borthwick opens door to discarded England players
World Rugby has announced several new measures aimed at speeding up the flow of the game, including a strict time limit for kicking penalties and conversions.
The law tweaks come into effect from 1 January and are intended to reduce time wasting by players, time spent consulting the TMO, and also state that water carriers are permitted to enter the field only after a try. The most notable change may prove to be a new countdown clock for kickers.
