Pool A: Japan v Scotland

Kick-off:7.45pm local time (11.45am Irish time), Sunday. Venue: Yokohama.How to follow:The Irish Times liveblog will begin at 11.15am.On TV:Live on Eir Sport.

The 2019 Rugby World Cup (as it currently stands) is littered with man made mistakes – blatantly poor refereeing influencing results and terrible pitch surfaces – spinning into natural disaster that the people in charge can offer no solution to despite 10 years assuring all and sundry that typhoons could be handled with now shelved contingency plans. Whether Scotland’s make-or-break clash with Japan will go ahead on Sunday morning will not be decided until, at the latest, six hours before the scheduled kick-off time.

“My view is that we’re not going to let Scotland be the collateral damage for a decision that was taken in haste,” said Scotland rugby union chief executive Mark Dodson.

“I think there’s alternative (venues) around Japan. The point to me, we are talking about now is not whether the game will take place on Sunday, that will be a purely meteorological issue. The issue will be if it can’t take place then we’re really, really pressing the point that we need to have to get this game delayed 24 hours later.”

When asked about moving this fixture to another city or pushing the game to Monday, tournament director Alan Gilpin stated it was “unfeasible on logistical and safety grounds.”
