Does anyone know when the IRB will communicate whether tomorrow's matches will happen?

There will be regular updates but not as regular as Steve Hansen calling Pizza Hut.

6 hours or up to 4 once damage accessed to see if everything can function.

Canada Namibia game almost certain to be called off.
Given Yokohama is right at the centre of the typhoon it will be a miracle if the game is played.

That was my thinking too, 4 days ago :lol:
Right now Yokohama stadium would look like a giant swimming pool, you could have jets print races in it.

When Suncorp Stadium flooded a few years ago, it took weeks to get up and running again.
The rest of the world cup could be affected still

For safety sake just call the game off.
I am sure everyone will understand.

Conditions are easing in Yokohama. It has been very wet but I'm not sure the pitch would be completely underwater - depends on the drainage.

Let's not forget this from ealier in the year:

Given that the game is scheduled to be played at the Kamaishi Recovery Stadium, it'd be a miracle if they take the weather in Yokohama into consideration.

Haha. That was poorly written by me. Case of the brain going faster than my typing.
Id jumped on to the Scotland Japan game for the second sentence!

The chances of the game being played are as likely as someone in the Amish community or someone in a coma watching it live.

People also aren't realising that police / security etc might have more important things to do tomorrow. It is not simply whether a pitch is available.

Yip it will be the infra structure etc in surrounding areas.
Safety is the only consideration.

Given this is World Rugby we are talking about, I expect they will make the call sometime on Monday evening.

If Ireland had lost to Samoa they would have called it on by now. However it's now obviously going to be called off sometime tomorrow.

I was feeling a bit sorry for the sweaties but after the threats to WR I hope the game does get called off.

Seems like you’re now set to be a whinging pain in everyone’s arse regardless of the decision. I’ve got to hand it to you and respect your level of whiny bitch.
