‘All Blacks Refused To Move Italy Game’ – Incredible Thread On World Cup Fiasco Is A Must Read

Fiasco.

The unthinkable happened yesterday morning when World Rugby announced that they were cancelling two World Cup games in Japan because of the threat of Typhoon Hagibis.

But at the same time, everyone is scratching their heads after World Rugby promised “robust contingency plans” only to cancel the games. Why couldn’t they be moved to another date? Why couldn’t they be played behind closed doors?

I did a piece on it myself yesterday that you can find here, but former England international Brian Moore has described it far better than anyone else with some fascinating insight too.
