Eddie Jones has urged World Rugby to stop the sport turning into American football by cutting the number of substitutes. 

On the day Premiership clubs were given the green light to resume phase one training, the England coach called for a radical shake-up. Jones said match-day squads should be trimmed from 23 to 21 and he also asked rugby's chiefs to sort out the hotly debated global calendar. 

'The game has gradually moved along a track and hasn't been looked at carefully enough,' Jones told Sky Sport NZ.

'Now we've got this great ball-out-of-play time and this small ball-in-play time. It's exacerbated the fact, with eight reserves, that we've got such a power game now.

'I'd only have six reserves. That would make a hell of a difference. Three front rowers, one back rower to cover the back-five, one half-back and one back to cover the rest. I reckon that would introduce some fatigue in the game. 

'From a scrum reset — and I need to think this one through a bit — we could go for a differential penalty where you can't kick for goal.
