    really?? a dedicated thread to this????

    If Japan v Scotland game gets cancelled then we top the group (not that they will let that happen)? Plus it lets us point out when the media gets a bit sensational...


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,399 ✭✭✭ Anjobe


    Track has been adjusted east since this morning. It now looks like its missing the Ireland game and heading straight for New Zealand vs Italy, and may affect England vs France as well!


  • Registered Users Posts: 10,823 ✭✭✭✭ Riskymove


    in addition to the game we are flying into Fukuoka on Thursday evening

    but thankfully I think we'll be ok on both fronts with changing track...hopefully it holds

    Actually, that would make it impossible for us to top the group. Japan would move to 16 points (getting 2 for a draw) and the most we can also get is 16. We'd come second based on the head to head.

    Yes (thanks for the correction) - I retract my comment about "that will never happen" - Scotland could get screwed by this...

    Italy would be delighted with a point!

    Drat! I was checking the forecast for Suzuka yesterday and it showed some rain on Saturday, and Sunday was clear and dry

    Surely the storm would be a god send for Japan? 2 points and top the group without having to play

    at this point world rugby have been vocal about their robust contingency plans. very difficult to not move or reschedule now unless serious impact on Japanese infrastructure/transport

    Might want to do your calculations again.

    All Japan need is a draw to top the group?

    Err, Japan are on 14pts, if their last game is cancelled they will have 16 pts. The best Ireland can do is 16 pts with a BP win over Samoa. If they are tied on points Japan will be pool winners on head to head.

    So, if Japan vs Scotland is cancelled that is great for Japan, Scotland are screwed, and Ireland are denied any chance of topping the pool.

    ...Japan will still top the group (even with the re-calc).


  • Registered Users Posts: 804 ✭✭✭ hahashake


    My humble apologies fellas.:D

    I was wrong.


  • Registered Users Posts: 1,353 ✭✭✭ schmoo2k


    Official statement re contingency plans:

    “Public and team safety is our number one priority. While we have robust contingency plans in place for pool matches, such plans, if required, will only be actioned if the safety of teams, fans, and workforce can be guaranteed. It would be inappropriate to comment on any contingency plans at this stage."

    If I was Scottish I would start to get worried...

    Looking at latest data, the Scottish game should go ahead (it should have passed by then) - assuming the infrastructure is up and running...

    Even if we have a better points difference?

    It goes head to head first, points difference second

    Oh fair enough. That last minute TBP for Japan vs Samoa could end up giving them top spot.

    I want to apologise for this post now.

    The typhoon is having a serious and lasting impact on the competition and in truth, will ruin it.

    Really, pool b finished NZL and SA, pool c finished Eng and then FR

    Realistically, no changes there from what would have happened if the games were played.

    Pool A, likely JPN and IRE, possible change with SCT missing out on second place and IRE on first.

    I've no sympathy for SCT given the stance Townsend took when it appeared his team might benefit from the hurricane and honestly IRE deserve second place rather than first.

    Hurricane will have no impact on QF and beyond.

    I'm not sure the competition is "ruined", although I do think its poor form not to have contingency plans by world rugby

    If you don't see the absoulute advantage of one team getting twice the rest period before a quarter final than the opposition, then I'm afraid you don't know the sport

    I was thinking this morning that this is going to be talked about for a long time.
