Cheats 'not widespread' say experts

A TASK force created to tackle the scandals that have tarnished the game this year says there is no evidence to suggest cheating is widespread.<br /><br />The Rugby Football Union&rsquo;s expert panel also found no proof the England team had fabricated blood injuries, as Harlequins infamously did in last season&rsquo;s Heineken Cup.<br /><br />The Image of the Game Task Group, which included elite director Rob Andrew and ex-England skipper Lawrence Dallaglio, made a list of recommendations aimed at cleaning up the game. The proposals include rugby league-style rolling substitutions and greater recording of substitutions for blood injuries.
