“Absolute Chaos” As World Rugby Call Emergency Press Conference Over Typhoon Concerns

Typhoon.

World Rugby have called an emergency press conference because of Super Typhoon Hagibis, which threatens to bring 160mph winds and heavy rain to the World Cup in Japan across the weekend.

Saturday’s clash between England and France is said to be in serious threat but World Rugby are yet to reveal what the plan is for this weekend, leaving the teams, the fans and the media in complete disarray.

The match could end up being played behind closed doors or even cancelled. If the fixture doesn’t go ahead it will be declared a draw with both teams earning 2 points, with England then topping the pool.

The Independent say a decision on the location of the game should it be played, is yet to be decided – but it could be too late to move it on such short notice. But overall it does not look good with Japan set to be hit by the worst typhoon in 60 years.
