Sanzar, the governing body for the Super Rugby tournament, on Thursday announced that half-time breaks for the 2013 season would be extended to 12 minutes.

Half-time breaks were previously limited to 10 minutes between halves, but Sanzar decided to give teams an additional two minutes in order for coaches to make the necessary changes to their ranks.

Sanzar also confirmed the draw and all venues for the 120 regular season matches to be played in this year’s Super Rugby season.

The eighteenth year of Super Rugby kicks off on Friday February 15, with the Rebels hosting the Force at AAMI Park in Melbourne.

Only the Australian Conference will be in action in round one (due to the British and Irish Lions Tour), with the New Zealand and South African teams commencing their season in round two.
