Typhoon Hagibis has been described as a "monster" by the Japanese Meteorological Agency. His violence forced World Rugby Director Alan Gilpin of Australia to make the historic decision to cancel the England-France and New Zealand-Italy meetings.

Security, a " primordial thing "

These two cancellations shock some participants in this World Cup. The weather should not " affect the players' dream of playing in a World Cup, " said a former captain of South Africa. Was there no other alternative than these cancellations? Question the captain of Italy, otherwise Japan should not have been chosen to host the world's most senior official of England.

" When you face such a violent typhoon, safety is a must, there is no question about it, " said the coach of New Zealand.

A World Cup despite everything exciting

Japan knows how to reduce the impact and damage caused by typhoon, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis. So far, this first Rugby World Cup to be held in Asia has aroused the greatest enthusiasm says its director, Alan Gilpin, the two game cancellations to ensure the safety of teams and supporters do not question its quality of organization and prudence of its Japanese host.
