Time will jump forward an hour during the Rugby World Cup, potentially causing confusion for fans attending games or watching a television broadcast. Daylight saving starts at 2am on Sunday, September 25 -- the day Argentina plays Scotland in Wellington, Fiji plays Samoa in Auckland, and Ireland plays Russia in Rotorua. If fans forget to adjust their watches they could turn up to World Cup events including matches an hour later than planned, potentially missing the kick-off. Also, Argentina and Russia are among eight countries participating in the World Cup where the whole country or part of the country does not observe daylight saving. Rugby New Zealand 2011 spokesman Mike Jaspers says organisers have already informed ticket holders about the time change in the official fan guide (page 65) and plan to email ticket buyers and post online notifications closer to the time. He adds that as two of the games are in the evening the normal publicity around the change should ensure fans are informed. Wellington City Council will post reminders on the way- finding beacons in the central city and make announcements at the official fanzone. Auckland Tourism and the Rotorua District Council do not plan on posting anything around their cities about the change, although Auckland Tourism has placed a notification on its website. Milestone for couple Long time: Cliff and Joyce Turner have been married 65 years. Cliff Turner has ap- peared regularly in the Hutt News during the years for various mile- stones connected to World War II. The D-Day veteran has now clocked up another milestone he is proud of -- 65 years of marriage. Mr Turner believes he and wife Joyce are the longest-married couple at Shona McFarlane Home. The pair were mar- ried at St Nicholas Parish, Hull, in 1936. These days Joyce lives in the hospital wing but Cliff visits twice a day.
