Finn Russell Japan v Scotland
A super typhoon could set the scene for a fierce storm of a different kind if Scotland doesn’t get the chance to play host nation Japan for a spot in the Rugby World Cup quarterfinals.
Scottish rugby officials have forecast legal action if Sunday’s game in Yokohama is cancelled, vowing not to be collateral damage of a potentially destructive typhoon expected to lash central Japan this weekend.
The Scots have argued World Rugby acted too hastily in canceling two games scheduled for Saturday, and could have found alternatives to ensure all games were completed.
The spin has been that Japan will benefit of the last of the pool games is canceled. And that has upset head coach Jamie Joseph, who thinks anyone saying that is missing one thing.
His team has beaten Ireland, Russia and Samoa and tops the group and deserves a spot in the World Cup quarterfinals for the first time. And just to prove it, he wants the Pool A game to go ahead just as much as his Scottish counterparts, who will definitely miss the knockout stage if it’s canceled.
Only two words will satisfy both teams when organizers make a final call on Sunday morning: game on.
“We feel we’ve played and won three test matches and that’s put us in the best position to win this pool,” Joseph said Friday. “Just in the past few days through the media reports I’ve read, I feel they’ve undermined the achievements of the Japanese national team and the significance of Sunday’s test for Japan.
“We’ve all earned the right to be considered one of the elite teams in the world. It’s important for us to wake up on Monday morning and understand we’re a worthy top eight team or we’re not.”
If Ireland beats Samoa on Saturday — that was the only game not cancelled on that day — Scotland needs to win
