Hawk-Eye makes international debut

England's World Cup warm-up game against France at Twickenham on Saturday will be the first international to use Hawk-Eye, World Rugby has confirmed.

The technology will improve the speed and accuracy of decision-making by television match officials and improve player welfare by giving the independent doctor the ability to quickly replay incidents.

The Hawk-Eye system, which comprises up to 36 cameras offering multiple angle replays in real time and slow motion and includes a powerful zoom option, will be in place throughout the World Cup following a successful trial in the Guinness PRO12.
