Great game that, Wales did well in end and scored twice with 14 men I think. Fiji were brilliant at times, just list discipline at key moments that cost them match. Out of world cup now any way while Wales hit the quarter finals.

Hearing eng vs france game is off due to Typhoon about to hit Japan where game is due. So it will go down as a 0-0 draw, and eng will get Australia in quarters......

Ok I think there is a 4am uk time press conference. I may be wrong but I think scots are gonna be fucked, as I don't think there game is gonna happen now..what a fucking mess. If they cancel the last round s of the group, japan get to quarters....not that they were not gonna any way if im honest. But what a silly situation, apparently that place and this time of year there is always typhoons....why no plan B

Is it not a case of them cancelling the ireland game, and playing the Scotland and Japan game?

In which case, Ireland gets fucked here.

I didn't realise the Scotland game on Sunday was in jeopardy. I thought the typhoon would pass by then..

They should just delay the games 24 hours and doubke stack games if neccessary. It may have a minor knock on, but it's better than teams getting knocked out of the world cup because of a typhoon.

Wait what?
Huge Typhoon has forced the eng vs france game maybe to be called off. Others amybe also, but there is a presser at 4am uk time I believe so we may know more then. Maybe there take the teams and play it indoors else where or some shit.

"England and Scotland's final World Cup pool matches this weekend are under threat from violent Typhoon Hagibis.
Hagibis is moving towards Japan and expected to make landfall on Saturday.
Both England's game against France in Yokohama on Saturday (09:15 BST) and Scotland's vital match with hosts Japan at the same venue on Sunday (11:45 BST) could be affected.
BBC weather presenter and meteorologist Simon King said it is "one of the most powerful tropical cyclones this year".
World Rugby has called a news conference on Thursday at 04:00 BST to discuss what action will be taken.
If the Scotland-Japan match was to be cancelled, under tournament rules Gregor Townsend's side would be knocked out of the World Cup."

I'm gonna write Prime Minister Abe to convert one of the indoor baseball pitches to a proper rugby pitch post haste. Get some extra jerseys to mark the halfway line and the try lines and ignore the baseball markings in the middle.

I really hope the Scots don't get fucked here. The home nations need to back them up and put in some sort of protest. It's just pure luck that it's not ireland or England facing this issueand instead it's Italy and Scotland.

Delay the games 24 hours and double stack them.
