Rugby World Cup: Japan – Scotland maintained, polemic avoided

-

The sun was back this Sunday on Tokyo and its region the day after Typhoon Hagibis, which left at least 7 dead and 17 missing.

As expected, the organizers of the competition announced around 11 am local time (4:00 pm) their decision as to whether or not to maintain Japan – Scotland, the decisive fixture of pool A to qualify for the quarter-finals. Yes, the match will take place at 19:45 (12:45 French time, on TMC).

This decision relieves all the followers of the competition who saw a controversy after the Scots, who would have been eliminated by a cancellation, threatened World Rugby lawsuit.

They can therefore hope to join Ireland, already qualified, provided they beat Japan in the position to reach the quarter-finals for the first time in its history.

Two other meetings were canceled in anticipation of the typhoon: France – England and Italy – New Zealand. These decisions and above all the lack of plan B had already created serious turmoil. The Italians, who could still claim to qualify for a feat against the All Blacks, had welcomed the news with great sadness. Sergio Parisse, the iconic captain, thus being deprived of his last international outing.

This Sunday, a third meeting was also canceled: Namibia – Canada. It was to be held in Kamaishi. A heartbreaker for this municipality almost scratched the map by the tsunami of 2011 and who saw in this meeting a symbol of his resurrection.
