FRI­DAY

Midweek Sport - - TV GUIDE -

THERE are very few oc­ca­sions when it is ac­cept­able to have a drink be­fore 9am.

It’s fine if you’re in an air­port and have a pint in the bar be­cause ‘this is when my hol­i­day starts’. It’s fine if you work as a butcher on Smith­field Mar­ket. Or if you’re Rus­sian, it’s per­fectly nor­mal.

But nor­mally, the only time you can get away with it is when there’s a mas­sive sport­ing event on the other side of the world – like say, the Rugby World Cup in New Zealand.

It starts to­day with New Zealand ( left) v Tonga – no bet­ter ex­cuse for crack­ing open a can of lager with your corn­flakes!
