Premiership to extend half-time
Players and fans will get an extra five minutes' break after the decision to extend the half-time interval in Premiership matches to 15 minutes.

The move is designed to help clubs capitalise on growing crowds in the competition, by giving them longer to serve half-time refreshments.

Players could also benefit from the chance to rest and refuel for longer.

Meanwhile, Sale Sharks have moved their regular kick-off time to 1945 to accommodate the longer break.

Last season's kick-off time of 2000 forced some fans to leave matches before the end in order to catch the last train from Stockport.
