    Organisers of the Rugby World Cup, taking place between September and October 2015 in England, have added an innovation to help novice fans learn the complex rules of the game. During the matches, fans will have access to simplified, in-game commentary with detailed explanations of the rules related to what is currently happening in each match.

    This was revealed when tournament organisers unveiled some of their plans for Britain's greatest global sporting event since the London 2012 Olympic Games. A report in the Daily Telegraph on April 29th had proposed some of the terms and rules that will be in the “Idiot’s guide to rugby union”.

    England v Italy

    Thread Starter: L'irlandais

    Sounds like the Frenchman has been taking a leaf out of Nigel Owen's book "I am a referee, not a coach," says Romain Poite when James Haskell asks what he is supposed to do if Italy don't commit men to the breakdown. England looking pretty lost in the first half. Asking the ref for advice,...
