Northern hemisphere rugby nations ask for games against southern hemisphere nations to be ‘shortened by a few minutes or so’

Northern hemisphere rugby nations have made an official request to shorten games against southern hemisphere nations to give them a better chance of winning.

South Africa pipped Wales last night and Scotland were leading Australia until the last two minutes today, only for the two southern hemisphere nations to pip the win in the final minutes.

Rugby boss Josh Noneck told WalesOnCraic:

“We’d like to see all games that we play against southern hemisphere sides to be shortened by about 10 or five minutes. We’d also like to see games brought to a premature end should we take the lead at any point. That way, we’re going to be in a much better chance of winning the game as opposed to how we are doing now at 80 minutes.”

The Rugby World Cup semi-finals are now all taken up by southern hemisphere sides – Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.

Noneck added:

“We’d also like to see the semi-finals played out in one of their countries too because none of us really give a shiny shit about the World Cup any more.”
