    A couple of suggested rule changes for rugby fans to ponder as you nurse a cold beverage tonight..

    A couple of suggested rule changes for rugby fans to ponder as you nurse a cold beverage tonight..


    Former England international Brian Moore is urging rulemakers do away with conversions and make all tries worth seven points.

    In his column for London's Telegraph, Moore says there's no reason a thrilling back movement scored in the corner should have a tougher two points than one scored from pick and go's near the line.

    Moore has also suggested a time limit on lineouts and scrums, with the throw-in to be reversed if the feeding team infringes.

    He believes both of these changes, among others, would seriously increase ball-in-play time.
