Hill said they may have gone a little bit too far in what they were thinking.

World Rugby had decided to use these new amended breakdown laws in domestic competitions around the world over the next year. If the trial was successful it may be introduced in Super Rugby in 2018.

Hill did say however, he was glad the trial took place.

”I knew it was going to make great change for the players, the coaches and the referees. And change does not happen in five minutes. We’re just getting to the stage now in the last couple of rounds we have had better breakdowns.

”At the end of the day a trial is a trial. You don’t know the outcome until you do the trial.”
