In a dramatic twist (get it?) World Rugby made the unprecedented announcement that they would be cancelling two final group games (Eng v France, NZ v Italy) and are monitoring the key game on Sunday (Scotland v Japan) due to Typhoon Hagibis descending on Tokyo…
And fans are FURIOUS with the decision.
Alan Gilpin should be fired. He refused to plan relocation of games because of broadcaster objections? Scotland to be eliminated without playing Japan? What a disgrace #firealangilpin— James Canning-Cooke (@CanningCooke) October 10, 2019
You are an absolute farce of an organisation. Your showpiece competition has absolutely no sporting integrity now.#disgrace— Stuart Grieve (@Somersetred1903) October 10, 2019
