an All Blacks match at the same time as that of the Black Ferns, the New Zealand Federation apologizes

THE SPORT SCAN – This Saturday, at the same time, the men will play against Japan a match of their autumn tour, while the women will play their quarter-final of the World Cup against Wales.

This is called a scheduling conflict. On Saturday, October 29, the New Zealand women’s and men’s national rugby teams will play a game at the same time, which doesn’t make it easy for fans keen to follow both. The All Blacks kick off their autumn tour in Japan, while the Black Ferns take on Wales in the quarter-finals of the Women’s Rugby World Cup which is currently underway at home in New Zealand.

The date and time of the quarter-finals known to the Black Ferns were however in advance, since New Zealand is the organizing country of the competition, which the Federation did not have “Sadlynot taken into account when setting the time for the men’s game against Japan. She apologized on Twitter:There was never an attempt to eclipse the World Cup, and the New Zealand Rugby Federation are delighted with the way New Zealanders have embraced not just the Black Ferns, but the tournament as a whole. .»

The Federation tried to change the time of the All Blacks match, without success. Nevertheless, she is delighted to be able to live “a very interesting weekendfor New Zealand rugby and encourage fans tocontinue to enthusiastically support the Black Ferns“. As a solution, rugby fans are invited to watch one of the two matches live and the other later… Not sure that, on the spot, this closes the debate.
