The latest on Japan vs Scotland following stadium inspection

Scotland’s World Cup game with Japan will go ahead on Sunday, World Rugby has confirmed.

Gregor Townsend’s men would have been eliminated from the World Cup had the Pool A finale been cancelled.

“The decision was taken following a comprehensive assessment of the venue and associated infrastructure on Sunday morning in partnership with the host city,” read a statement from World Rugby.

“World Rugby and the Japan Rugby 2019 Organising Committee would like to thank everyone involved for their significant efforts to enable the match to be played as scheduled following one of largest and most powerful typhoons to hit Japan in recent years.

“Fans attending Sunday night’s match are advised to check travel operator information before departing and plan to arrive early as it may take longer than usual to enter the stadium.

“Fans should also expect a significantly reduced level of spectator service in terms of catering and merchandise sales owing to limitations on venue staff availability as a result of the typhoon.”
