Scotland-Japan to go ahead

Scotland-Japan to go ahead”

Canon have released special footage of the 26th minute pearler, which came on the back of several brilliant offloads from the hosts and saw them take the lead for the first time in the match, which they went on to win 28-21 to book a maiden quarterfinal appearance.

Outgoing Namibia coach Phil Davies was happy to take the two points they received for a default draw for the cancellation.

It was the first time in the 32-year history of the Rugby World Cup that games had been scrapped, and raised criticism of the decision to hold the tournament during Japan's typhoon season.

"We have to make sure the next time we are back together we get on with it and perhaps start to realise that things aren't going to go our way all the time".

"I believe we would have won today".

Canada was on a 10-match winless run in the tournament dating to 2011.

Authorities lifted rain and flood warnings for the Kanto region around a becalmed Tokyo before dawn on Sunday but imposed them on areas further north after Typhoon Hagibis blasted through the capital. The Canadians put a ring around this match after becoming the last team to qualify 11 months ago.

Namibia coach Phil Davies said he had "never seen so much rain" despite being from Wales.

"Rugby is an global family, it is a family worldwide and we often talk that you can go to any rugby club in the world and if you want to find a mate and a beer then you'll find one in a rugby club".

"I still feel the group has grown", Jones said.

"We know we're representing Asia, we're representing Japan, we're representing Tier 2".

World Rugby told fans of Namibia and Canada not to travel to Kamashi ahead of Sunday's planned match, as they consider whether it should be cancelled.

Andy Gomarsall, who played in two World Cups for England, thinks it is hard for newcomers to compete with the funding. Then the celebrations really got underway when Leitch and co bowed to the crowd. About 19, 18 of these players will have the ability to play in 2023.

Gold is hopeful of the knock-on effect of the newly formed Major League Rugby, hopeful that the USA will nail down specific elements of its game - like defense and the set-piece - and hopeful the US might bid and get to host the 2027 Rugby World Cup.

Before kickoff, the USA and Tongan players stood in silence with heads bowed in a moment's silence for those affected by Typhoon Hagibis.

Hagibis, which means "speed" in the Philippine language Tagalog, made landfall on Japan's main island of Honshu on Saturday evening and headed out to sea early on Sunday, leaving behind cloudless skies and high temperatures across the country. Japan's last Pool A game against Scotland went ahead later Sunday in Yokohama.

World Rugby gave the green light and the spectacle on show was a refreshing take on a sport that often degenerates into a scripted battle of dominance where there is little enterprise on show.

World Rugby said 30 per cent of homes were either damaged or destroyed, 60 per cent of businesses were completely inundated and 98 per cent of the local fishing fleet was wiped out.
