England against France on Saturday has been called-off, because of Typhoon Hagibis, but Rugby World Cup organisers hope Scotland against Japan can go ahead as planned on Sunday.

The typhoon – described as the biggest of the year – is set to wreak havoc in Tokyo and the surrounding areas.

The Pool B match between New Zealand and Italy in Toyota on Saturday has also been cancelled.

However, Ireland’s match with Samoa in Fukuoka is expected to go ahead as scheduled.

Cancelled matches see both teams awarded two points, as part of a 0-0 draw.
