Changes to scoring in Rugby Union to be tested

NULL

Could the upcoming Rugby Union World Cup be the final one with five points awarded for a try? Trials are going to take place in Wales, in which six-points will be awarded. Penalties and drop-goals will also be reduced from three points to two in the Principality Premiership this season. The thinking behind it is that it could make games more open and attacking, with the ball being in play more and fewer penalties and drop-goals attempted.
