Schedule 'not right', says World Cup chief

Rugby World Cup chief executive Martin Snedden admits the schedule for the tournament has to change in the future, admitting it has been difficult for some teams.

The near seven-week-long tournament has been criticised for giving the lower-ranked nations a tougher schedule than the more established nations.

But Snedden tells BBC Sport's Dan Roan they face difficulties in amending the schedule for the 20-team competition, unless it is extended by a further seven days.
