    I found them handy in the iFollow matches if I fancied a cuppa midway through a half. Might be a slight drag watching it live in the stadium, but it's not like it goes on forever.

    Seems a strange thing to be annoyed about.

    they are only 3 minutes long each half.... I have no problems with it.It also allows the coaches a quick time to give info to the players.

    They started to refer to it as quarters, get rid of the drinks breaks we're not American!

    Coaches give information to the players during the game, it's part of what a coach does. There's always natural breaks during a game anyway where players can get a drink if they need one.

    Should be scrapped. Simple as that. We have half time. They can have 5 gallons of water then if they like. Similarly if there is a 'normal' lengthy break in play for, say, a serious injury they can have a drink then. New fangled ********. What next - a manicure break? A shoe-lace retying break? Get shut.

    I hope not. There is no reason to keep them once the new season starts.

    I thought I read somewhere they were not continuing - only introduced due to playing in July which is hotter than the normal season
    Not sure about the Subs whether that goes back to 3 or the extras are still allowed
