Typhoon Disrupts the Rugby World Cup Fixtures

The organisers of the Rugby World Cup have come to the decision to cancel tomorrow’s matches. This means that England vs France and New Zealand vs Itlay game will not happen. The canceled games will be recorded as a draw with each team receiving 0-0 and both clubs will be given two points.

The four matches that are meant to be played on Sunday are still being reviewed as event director, Alan Gilpin stated. This is the first time in the competition’s history that any match has been stopped. From Pool C, England and France are qualified with England at the top of the group. The most anticipated match is Japan’s final game that they will play with Scotland on Sunday at Yokohama. If the match is not played that means Japan will move onto the quarterfinals as the winners of Pool A. So, Scots have no choice but to make sure that they win!

Samoa will face Ireland on Saturday. The game will take place in Japan’s South West (in Fukuoka) and will be cleared from the storm. Taking a look at this upcoming match as well as Ireland’s previous match performance, Ireland will likely win the match. The club will be in full strength ahead of the game. Samoa has not impressed us enough in the World Cup, Russia is the only team that they have defeated. The odds on betway stands at 1.02 for Ireland, the draw is 50.00 and Samoa sits at 15.00.
