Re: Rugby World Cup: Japan versus Ireland

I think its outrageous that games are cancelled.
The risk of typhoons was always there so they should have had back up venues, without spectators if necessary, for all games.
As it stands, England, France and NZ all get an extra rest before the QFs which is significant in Rugby.
If the Scottish game is to be cancelled, the Irish game should also be cancelled. At least then we also get a rest and avoid some definite injuries which would be picked up against Samoa.
It is in the rules (see section 3) and they looked at backup venues but the nearest for the E v F game was 500 miles away but it was not feasible given the timings and logistics involved.
