One in 10 people say they will do less work in the coming weeks as they expect to miss sleep so they can watch the rugby World Cup, a new study showed.
Research by digital TV service Freeview suggested that millions of fans will cut back on spending time with their family and friends so they can watch games from this weekend.
A survey of 2,000 adults showed that a tenth of workers believed their productivity will be hit, while housework could also be relegated or put off so they can watch games from the event in New Zealand.
