    With the tournament being in Japan, today's curtain raiser was Japan 30, Russia 10. I didn't even know the Russians played rugby

    Meanwhile, Google have dedicated their daily 'doodle' to the event ...

    Note to organisers: this competition is producing too many mis-matches

    I've only seen a couple of tight games so far.

    The fiasco continues as England's first meaningful game is cancelled due to a typhoon warning

    Also, Scotland's match against the hosts Japan is in doubt. Should the game go ahead then Scotland have a good chance of winning and qualifying, but if it's called off it's the host nation that goes through ... I wonder what the tournament organisers will decide

    Scotland consider legal action to ensure Rugby World Cup match vs Japan goes ahead

    Scottish Rugby are ready to to take legal action against World Rugby chiefs to ensure their decisive World Cup clash with Japan goes ahead.

    The threat of Typhoon Hagibis has already seen Saturday's two matches cancelled, and declared a draw.

    But a repeat on Sunday - with World Rugby set to make a decision on the hosts clash with Gregor Townsend's side on Sunday morning - would see Scotland eliminated.

    The Scots currently lie third behind Japan and Ireland in Pool A and must beat the hosts to progress to the quarter-finals - unless the Irish lose to Samoa.

    World Rugby rules state that "where a pool match cannot be commenced on the day in which it is scheduled, it shall not be postponed to the following day and shall be considered as cancelled. In such situations, the result shall be allocated two points each and no score registered".
