Super Rugby Pacific has confirmed the Hurricanes top of the table Super Rugby Pacific Round 8 match against the Chiefs at Sky Stadium in Wellington this Saturday will now kick off at 2.35PM (NZST).
The kick off time has been moved from its original time of 7.05pm (NZST) due to delays in planned Sky Stadium floodlight upgrades. Sky Stadium had hoped to have upgrades completed last week but safety concerns due to high winds have meant contractors lost half their available workdays since starting the month-long project.
UPDATED KICK OFF TIME:
Hurricanes v Chiefs: Saturday 15 April at 2.35PM, Sky Stadium WELLINGTON
