England squad fully aware of World Cup betting rules, says assistant coach Neal Hatley

The full playing squad and backroom staff of england have signed a document saying that they know World Rugby’s regulations on anti-corruption and gambling.
The World Cup is currently reeling from the information which Wales assault coach Rob Howley has returned to reply in relation to betting on rugby, especially for an alleged breach of the principles.
Along with each nation competing in Japan, World Rugby’s ethics unit gave England a comprehensive 20-minute briefing on Wednesday.
A form signed by everybody present to record that they understood its contents and was passed around.
“It couldn’t be any better for us as a squad. All the stipulations were put out very, quite obviously,” assistant coach Neal Hatley said.
“I was a little bit amazed about Rob, however, it had been left clear before we came and it had been made clear on Monday. It is a real warning for everybody in the tournament. A real live reminder”
Among the steps taken to guard the game are directions that players have to turn off their phones in the accumulation to World Cup matches.
England were informed during the briefing on Monday that at the last international showpiece four years back there have been six reports of approaches being made to staff or players.
World Rugby used the case of prior Leicester defence coach Phil Blake, that was banned for a violation of Rugby Football Union gambling rules for six months in 2015, to describe the possible consequences of any wrongdoing.
England created the trip out of Miyazaki to Sapporo from Tonga on Sunday while the Wales camp came into terms of the sudden death of Howley.
Eddie Jones titles his team to deal with the Pacific Islanders on Friday when he’s expected to provide World Cup bolter Lewis Ludlam a beginning in the back row.
Twelve months past Ludlam was considering his options out rugby as he feared his professional career was slipping away as a result of injury but was picked in an England squad for the first time in Junehe managed to reestablish Jones in training and on his debut from Wales to book his ticket into Japan.
“To be involved in something like that… you grow up watching this tournament and today you’re here. It’s just about making the most of it today,” that the 23-year-old flanker said.
“It’s what you have been working towards since you were a child, lacing your boots up and wanting to be there.
“So I’m very grateful to get that chance. I am grateful to the trainers and it is just about proving them right and doing them proud and doing something special.
“Plenty of people discuss Tonga becoming a very physical team but that is not all. They are dangerous, they’ve got a lot of players.
“We have reviewed them hard, we have looked at it and now we’ve got a fantastic strategy in place to hopefully turn them at the weekend.”
