Typhoon Hagibis could yet put Ireland out.

If the typhoon causes Saturdays game to be cancelled and it isnt rescheduled to the Sunday then the game is declared a draw and Ireland are out  :-\
If Japan beat Scotland, we'd still be 2nd !

It was a cheap shot and got what it deserved. A side-on shoulder to the head/neck of a blindsided player is as clear a red card as you'll see.

AH I just think a few weeks ago it's a yellow but that's how it is now so no point grumbling about it.

Good to see Scotland taking advantage after Ireland beat up Russia the last day!!

Mental!!! If our last pool match against the French 4 years ago had been called off there's every reason to believe we'd have beaten Argentina!!

Sergio Parisse didn't deserve to finish a career like that.

No matter what odds, Italy had a chance against New Zealand. It beggars belief that you can just write off a game due to Natural Cause (that will pass).

On the other hand....England are absolutely laughing.

Why couldn't they have brought the matches forward?

Why is everyone getting annoyed? This was obviously factored in beforehand. Going to Japan would have ensured that there was the possibility of a game being cancelled.

The problem is that they should have had plans to rearrange a game or move it, with it being agreed by all countries. If the countries agreed, then why make a fuss?
