"Biggest annoyances New Zealand's timezone"

Don't worry, it'll be in England next time. Does England have enough big stadia? Twickenham, O2, Olympic park, Leeds... Or might they use the Millenium Stadium and Murrayfield?

Apparently the Glasgow commonwealth games swimming competitions will be in Edinburgh!
