A six-point try is set to be trialled in Welsh rugby's Principality Premiership this season.

The trial, which has been given a green light by the Welsh Rugby Union board but is subject to World Rugby approval, will also see penalties and drop-goals reduced from three points to two.

A penalty try, meanwhile, will be an automatic eight-point score, with no conversion taken.
