Putting into practice the findings of New Zealand Rugby's review into sport's culture ``won't happen overnight'', but its review leader Kathryn Beck, says significant changes will happen. The Respect and Responsibility Review, which looked at 36 cases of misconduct investigated over the past four years, was sparked by the Chiefs' high-profile stripper scandal during the team's Mad Monday celebrations last year. New Zealand Rugby says it's determined to do better, and is committing to short, medium and long term goals including a shift towards an independent investigation and formal complaints process. Kathryn Beck is the president of the New Zealand Law Society.
