Rugby Union: All Blacks win their night fight

Click to follow
ENGLAND'S cricketers are not the only people unhappy with their tour. New Zealand's trip to England and Scotland next season has been changed after protest.

Two of the proposed floodlit matches, which the New Zealanders dislike, have been dropped, but in the true spirit of compromise, they will now have to play once on a Sunday. They will play just twice at night late on in their tour - at Gloucester and Devonport, but will have to play England A at Gateshead on the Sabbath.

The All Blacks will start up with games against the four English Divisions, then play England A and move on to meet Scotland before returning to play England and, finally, to Cardiff for the showpiece against the Barbarians.
