Cardiff Council yesterday granted John Laing Construction, the Millennium Stadium contractors, the authority to work 24 hours a day on weekdays, 10 hours on Saturdays and eight hours on Sundays to complete the pounds 121m project on the old Cardiff Arms Park. The contractors said they needed the extended hours because poor weather over the summer had hampered work. A Laing spokesperson, Lisa Cullimore, said the stadium would be finished in time to stage the international against the world champions South Africa next summer three months before Wales host the 1999 World Cup.

TUESDAY'S LATE RESULT: Club Match: Cambridge University 59 Cambridge City 12.
