FINDING A HOME: In London, Ashling O'Connor reported the choice of venues for the World Cup "has been beset by problems and delays." After securing more time from the IRB to accommodate the Olympic Stadium, tournament organiszers "promise that the match schedule will be finalised before the end of the month." Although West Ham United is confirmed as the winter tenants of the Olympic Stadium from the '16-17 season, it is "still unclear if it would be possible to halt substantial conversion work to stage World Cup games."

The situation is "complicated further by the police, who could veto dates" (LONDON TIMES, 4/3).
