This Thursday, coaching the team Scotland put the pressure on World Rugby on Thursday so that the decisive match against Japan, Sunday, takes place after the cancellations of New Zealand - Italy and France-England.
A few hours after the cancellation of two World Cup matches due to typhoon, coaching the Scotland team put the pressure on World Rugby on Thursday so that the decisive match against Japan on Sunday will take place . "With potential impact on our last game in Pool A, the Scottish Rugby Federation is fully hopeful that contingency plans will be put in place to allow Scotland to play on the pitch for a quarter-final place and will be flexible to achieve this, " said a spokesman for the federation.

The Japan-Scotland match, scheduled for Sunday in Yokohama, is also threatened by Typhoon Hagibis. In case of cancellation, the draw (0-0) would qualify Japan to the detriment of the Scots. "We are in regular contact with World Rugby, at all levels, to ensure that the match against Japan can be played as scheduled," added the spokesman.
The organizers of the World Cup have indicated that no decision had been taken and that they would study the situation until Sunday morning, just a few hours before the kick-off match scheduled at 19:45 (11:45 French 09:45 GMT).
