Kurtley Beale Wants World Rugby To Make A Huge Change To Test Matches

Wallaby star Kurtley Beale has called for extra-time to be introduced into Test games after Australia and South Africa played out yet another draw in the Rugby Championship over the weekend.
The 27-27 draw on Saturday, three weeks after the 23-23 draw in Perth, left Beale, along with many others, dissatisfied with the result.
“I think you’ve definitely got to look into it,” Beale told the Australian Rugby Union’s official website.
“Five minute break – or maybe a 10 minute break up on the Highveld just to get the oxygen in the lungs a bit.”
“It’s just a dull feeling, isn’t it,”
“There’s no proper result, I feel like it’s just a bit of a dead rubber kind of thing. It’s a lot of mixed emotions.
“Both teams thought they should have won and for the fans, really, it probably would be better for them to get a certain result.”
The same can definitely be said for this summer’s British & Irish Lions tour of New Zealand. No doubt it would have been a much more satisfying end if the teams played an extra-time period until an actual winner was crowned.
