The road to the game -
Once upon a time there was a typhoon called Hagibis that wandered out of the central Pacific Ocean.
Image

Its original path looked like it might cause the Ireland vs. Samoa game to be cancelled. Which was met with calm equanimity.

Then some All Blacks (sic) did a quaint form of rain dance.
Image

Whereupon the typhoon Hagibis decided to make landfall... somewhere different.

The Irish did cry FOUL!
Imagevia Imgflip Meme Generator

The Italians did cry FOUL!
Image

The Scots did cry FOUL!
Image

And threatened Hagibis with lawyers! The very same lawyers that did for dear Boris' proroguegate!
Image

Verily did Hagibis get the message and buggered off to bother the Canucks and Namibians.

And so with great rejoicing the joyous fans did rejoice.
ImageImage

Alas not all. :(

For there was one happyhooker of this parish that did gaze upon the morning's bright blue skies with happiness in his heart for he had scored free tickets to this game.
Image


Yet as Hannibal crossed the Alps so did the proper owners trek across the land of the rising sun to claim their own.

Thus the distraught happyhooker decided to instead indulge in the local culture.

Certainly for the home nation. I wonder how much local coverage this is getting/if it's generating any buzz in Tokyo.

Heaps of coverage of the rugby but they are too kind to talk too much about the way the SRU acted.

Am so excited for this one, naturally the Scots will f**king ruin our enjoyment, but c'mon Japan ... yes I realise the factors involved if Japan do win for NZ.

Huge round of applause to the Japanese for even staging this match after a horrific 24 hours :thumbup:

Should Japan get the World Cup again, fudge yeah, over 1 million attendees to the matches thus far :shock:

Apparently 70 million Japanese are watching this on TV.

The most watched match of all time, including the millions around the world (according to the Australian pre-match show stoppers)

As much I want Japan to win I think the rugby experience of Scotland will win and qualify. Thats the way it goes in rugby, not the underdog's sport yet

I think Japan have better players and a better team though and they should win imo.

I want Japan to win, which means they're probably going to lose. Sorry. I'm trying really hard to want Scotland to win instead.

NBC sports coverage of the game just came on in the USA. The stadium is packed and the field looks like it's in great condition. Massive respect for the Japanese pulling this off 1 day after a typhoon and an earthquake.

Hope the ref doesn't make a mistake in favour of Japan that allows them the win else the SRU will be tapping up the lawyers again.
