    It appears a Rugby World Cup game will be cancelled for the first time

    It appears a Rugby World Cup game will be cancelled for the first time


    The Daily Mail claims England and France's Pool C decider will not go ahead due to the typhoon barrelling towards Tokyo and Yokohama on Saturday.

    Reports suggested the fixture would be moved behind closed doors in Oita , but that was updated to say the game would stay in Yokohama, before the idea of a cancellation emerged.

    Tournament rules say nothing about moving pool fixtures, only that they can be delayed on the same day or cancelled.

    Toyota City - where the All Blacks' game against Italy is to be played - has also been mentioned by World Rugby as an impact area.

    World Rugby will unveil further plans at a 4pm media conference.
