England rugby bosses have bought England No 10 Owen Farrell an alarm clock ahead of their quarter-final clash this weekend.
England bosses are worried he may spend too long having bants with his team mates instead of kicking penalties.
England conditioning coach Tarquin Smythe-Peacock told WalesOnCraic:
“The lad got carried away a little bit in the last game and it could have cost us the match. While the clock was ticking down for him to kick the penalty, there he was having a laugh and a jape with the lads. We thought we’d get around this problem by buying him an alarm clock. We’ll put it on the pitch next to him and we’ll set it for about 40 seconds so that when it goes off, he’ll still have 20 seconds left to kick the bloody ball.”
England play Fiji this weekend in the World Cup Quarter Final. Former rugby commentator John Inverdale told WalesOnCraic:
“England won the Rugby World Cup in 2003.”
