Scotland get go-ahead for Japan game despite Typhoon Hagibis

:Headline: Scotland get go-ahead for Japan game despite Typhoon Hagibis:
The super storm has caused widespread destruction across the host nation.
PA | 1mo

Scotland’s World Cup fate will be decided on the pitch after their win-or-bust showdown with Japan was given the go-ahead following a stadium inspection.

The Dark Blues feared they would be knocked out of the tournament without kicking another ball if the match was cancelled in the wake of Typhoon Hagibis.

But following a “detailed assessment” of the match venue at Yokohama’s International Stadium, the climax to Pool A with the hosts will take place as planned in front of a sell-out 70,000 crowd.

“We would like to thank everyone involved for enabling this match to take place and look forward to playing the Brave Blossoms to conclude our Rugby World Cup Pool.

“It has obviously been an incredibly difficult night across large areas of Japan and Typhoon Hagibis certainly made its presence felt in Yokohama where the team are staying.

“We pass on our best wishes to everyone affected by the storm and our friends in Japan who continue to be great hosts.”
