SuperSport pundits Robbi Kempson and Warren Brosnihan believe World Rugby should scrap their new water-break law because of the negative impact it is having on the flow of the game.

Evans: “We’ll stop for a water break.”
Sexton: “We just had a break [two mins for TMO check], we don’t need one.”
Evans: “I get that, you called for it. OK, water off then… I only said it because your team asked for it. Nothing to do with me.” pic.twitter.com/MJ9BwHi8h2

2 minutes added to the game when there had been a kick at goal 2 minutes before where some water could have been taken pic.twitter.com/M6rU4OZ2iR

Utterly bizarre scenes yesterday of a ref letting a team have a water break *after* a conversion. Dullest time wasting.
We need to speed the game up again, too much slowing down is allowed.

The current arrangement is the worst solution to a problem that just needed refs to be kept in control.
Too many water carriers invading? Warning then penalty. Simple.
The current sham of water breaks is killing momentum, confusing fans and is literally – a waste of time. https://t.co/88VX4kx3nn
