Latest posts by Jason Hennessy (see all)
Scotland’s crucial Rugby World Cup pool match with Japan remains under threat with World Rugby set to make an official decision whether or not the game goes ahead on Sunday morning.
The Scots have threatened legal action against the governing body should the game not go ahead. If the game is cancelled, Scotland’s World Cup will be over with Japan automatically advancing to the knockout stages.
“We’ve had legal opinion – from a leading QC – that challenges World Rugby’s interpretation.”https://t.co/oUwyXkRrKX

World Rugby meanwhile have hit back at Scotland’s “disappointing” comments, making it clear that the game will not be rescheduled if they are unable to proceed with it on Sunday.
And now footage has emerged of the Japan team heading out onto the pitch for their captain’s run this morning and it doesn’t look good. Check out the flooding. Very worrying scenes for Scotland fans.
