No its not a seperate direction at all. You commented that its a safety issue. Dont infer I feel the Japanese authorities are stupid. I would consider you the most level headed of all venting and ranting and one eyed posters here. You stated its a safety issue. Is it unsafe in Tokyo?. Potentially a huge yes. But Yokohama is fine?? Obviously not. But it is as they should cancel the unimportant SCO vs JPN game, but they won't. As has been stated here already, the decisions are based on the teams who are competing for the RWC and who have chance of that title, not teams such as SCO or JPN. SCO vs JPN should OBVIOUSLY be cancelled as its a safety issue. Or is the Japanese civil defence authority confident that a game a stones throw from Tokyo, and closer to the hurricane but happens to be a game invoking their host nation Japan is absolutely fine? Thats a joke. It should already have been cancelled, thats the issue. Or whoever organised this event should have done it properly. Its very conceivable that when tae day arrives its a lovely day, such is the difficulty in assessing hurricane behaviour. But SOME games were canceled when it was 1200km away, and some WEREN'T. I wonder what the reactions would be if some other teams were adversely affected by a non rugby event.

 

So much for sportsmanship, this may as well be boxing. 

 

 

Again, that's your opinion.

 

Sco-Jap minority match is as unimportant as the minority party of Winston Peters choosing Jacinda Ardern or Bill English.

Handle9: Give it a rest, casting moral aspersions at anyone who doesn't agree with you is getting really tiresome.


Tiresome is better than bias. Why is a game in Tokyo cancelled days ago, and a game in Yoko isn't? 



Whatever. I'm out of this thread, you're killing it.

Handle9

The forecast for Sunday is significantly better than Saturday. If the typhoon has gone through then Sundays games may be able to take place.

Disneyland plans to reopen at midday Sunday etc so they think the typhoon will have passed through.

 

I am well aware of the weather. My issue is the politics and bias. Perhaps the Tokyo game should have been swapped with the Yokohama game.

 

And you wonder why people get sick of politics vs sport.

 

Clearly the article about the switching of venues is not newsworthy....

Your bias and lack of sportsmanship unless it suits is killing it. Its a pity that sport cannot be played fair. Unless it suits. 

 

Yes, whatever.

Its not a minority match at all. For SCO its a big deal. For Japan as the host nation and going well, its a big deal even if half dont know what sayonara means.

 

Its a World Cup. Chatham islands team is as important as the All Blacks. Post pool play we step up. If your opinion is correct, the RWC is a joke just play the top tier teams.

 

Now tell me this. The hurricane is sooner. AB's get two cancelled games vs no names. Draws, no easy 80 point wins and bonus points. Our tough opposition gets  easy draws against tough top tier nations. We are gone. Im sure all of us will say, thats cool, thats the rules bugger?

Ok, I apologise. I have merely asked some basic questions, that continue to not be responded to. If I was responded to with rational reasons that would be fine. Such as Why is a game in Tokyo cancelled days ago, and a game in Yoko isn't?  I would have hoped I would get a rational reply, not an unrational one. Again, I'm sorry MF, but is that too much to ask? I'm sure there may be a very rational reason to that one example, but I cannot think what it may be, given the location of both cities. Then I get the replies that occur.

Answer: no one will know for sure because ascfar as I know nobody here is part of the organising committee.

It is all an opinion, so time to stop antagonising on something like this.

The SCO v JPN game will go ahead at this stage by the looks. 

 

Go Japan! I don't want to face Ireland in the Quarters. If we go out in the quarters, the country will go into recession.

Go Scotland and Japan! I hope that this will be the most close-fought game of the tournament. Although Scotland must be the underdogs because of Japan's home advantage and Scotland's performance is mixed with a bad loss to Ireland.

 

Japan have been the biggest giant-killers for two tournaments but they've never made it out of the pools. So it would be fantastic if they won. On the other hand, Scotland consistently (only missed once) make the quarterfinals so it would be disappointing if they didn't at a time when their game has improved so much in recent years.

 

It's a face saver for the RWC organisation because, if the game does get played, Scotland won't be pursuing a detailed review of why there was no comprehensive or realistic contingency plan for a weather storm. Yes, they signed up to no rescheduling but they were also being told that real contingency plans existed.

If Japan win won’t they top the group then we would play Ireland as runners up?

Yip. Best result for NZ is Scotland win. After all the anti-NZ nonsense from Scotland I'd like to see them win today but Japan get a bonus point (or two for 4+ tries and a close.loss).

Ireland would top the group and Japan would go through second.
