Reading Time: < 1 minute

Japan’s rugby union team brave high waters and a sodden pitch to train at Prince Chichibu Memorial Stadium on Saturday (October 12) as Typhoon Hagibis made its way to Tokyo.

Japan are due to play Scotland in Yokohama on Sunday (October 13), if Rugby World Cup organisers believe it is safe to play the match.

Organisers will decide whether the match is played on Sunday morning, dependent on the damage left behind by the typhoon.

Japan are currently top of Pool A and will qualify for the World Cup knockout stages for the first time if they beat Scotland on Sunday.

Scotland cancelled their training session on Saturday.
