    Did I just hear that right on the Radio? If Scotland games cancelled because of the weather they are out? :56: what a * shambles of that happens.

    Italy saying the same, they’re match with New Zealand has been cancelled meaning they are out, guarantee if a draw sent Italy through and New Zealand out they’d have made arrangements

    What would Scotland have to do to go through if the games on?

    Yep as said if this was one of the biggies with this predicament they would defo get something done.

    Mind you not surprising after the time in the WC against Australia where they were cheated.

    Obviously it would be a massive upset if Italy were to get a result against New Zealand but the facts are they were still alive heading into this last pool game and they are right if the rolls were reversed a way would have been found to get the game played. A total joke that Italy is getting knocked out of the World Cup like this. I should also say this fiasco directly affects Ireland and IMHO effectively ends our interest in the Rugby World Cup as well. We play Samoa on Saturday needing a win to advance to the Quarter-Finals where we would likely face New Zealand who will have been favourites anyway but now they are nice and rested while we will have a bruising encounter with the most carded team at the Rugby World Cup instead as preparation. Total joke.

    I’d imagine the teams would be unable to travel to a different venue etc.. so logistically could be tricky..

    They could put the fixtures back a day or two, I’m sure we’d rather swallow a days less rest rather than be booted.

    The hosts will cancel the game and take that QF spot.

    Japan has typhoons every year to them it is a regular occurrence. I don't get why they have no contingency plan for this when they first announced they would be hosting the world cup.

    Scotland have made it abundantly clear they’ll travel or play behind closed doors or anything else they’re told to do.

    This isn’t being sprung on anyone there’s been literal days to make alternative plans and a huge chunk of Japan aren’t effected in any way.

    I hope this galvanises the Scottish rugby team. The powers to be don't want you there, they haven't given a * about you in last would cup or this world cup. Now go out and prove they have made a mistake in overlooking Scottish rugby. And Japan can * off too.

    See the different attitudes about all this between the English fans and Scottish fans interviewed by the media today. The general difference is unreal,makes me proud to be a Scot.
