 Kick-off time change for Parana
Wales will now kick off against Fiji at 15:00


The International Rugby Board has announced a change to the kick-off times of the IRB Junior World Championship 2010 at the Club Atletico Estudiantes in Parana for Match Days 2, 3 and 4.

Matches scheduled for Wednesday 9, Sunday 13 and Thursday 17 will start at 13:00 and 15:00 local time, one hour earlier than previously announced.

The matches scheduled for Match Day 5 on Monday, June 21 will kick-off as planned at 12:00 and 14:15 local time.

"Due to a potential issue with failing light in the second match on match days, and following consultation with all stakeholders, we have taken the precautionary measure of bringing the kick-off time forward in Parana to ensure there is no disadvantage or safety risk to the participating teams, which is of paramount importance," said Tournament Director Philippe Bourdarias.
