Rugby chaos

Typhoon Hagibis, one of the worst storms to hit Japan this year, comes as the country hosts the Rugby World Cup.

Two matches, England-France and New Zealand-Italy, were preemptively canceled due to the storm, and World Cup authorities said they were evaluating whether additional matches Sunday would need to be called off.

While authorities made clear that the decision to cancel games was necessary to ensure the safety of players and fans, many were critical of the tournament's inability to reschedule games and apparent unpreparedness for the extreme weather -- despite the World Cup being held during typhoon season.

Japan sends in thousands of troops after massive typhoon hammers Tokyo

  Japan sends in thousands of troops after massive typhoon hammers Tokyo Japan sends in thousands of troops after massive typhoon hammers TokyoA powerful Typhoon Hagibis is approaching Japan and grew from a tropical storm to a category 5 storm in less than a day. It will bring 2 feet of rain and damaging winds to the Tokyo area this weekend, and Japan's government warned people to stockpile supplies and evacuate before it's too dangerous. The storm's center passed over an uninhabited island in the Marianas, but strong winds could continue to threaten islands in the region even as the storm moves away. Forecasts show the storm gradually weakening throughout the week as it moves north toward Japan.

TOKYO (Reuters) - A typhoon lashed Japan with torrential rain on Monday after killing at least one person, forcing the cancellation of flights and Three U.S. servicemen were swept away by high waves lashing the southwestern island of Okinawa on Sunday as Typhoon Phanfone approached .

In canceled games, two points will be awarded to each team, in line with tournament rules. This could have an effect on who qualifies for the next round of the competition, particularly in Pool B, which includes hosts Japan.

While Ireland's Pool B match against Samoa will go ahead Saturday in Fukuoka prefecture, no decision has been made around Japan and Scotland's crunch match on Sunday, due to take place in Yokohama, a city south of Tokyo which lies in Hagibis' path.

A win for Scotland would see it draw level on points with Japan, after which bonus points -- awarded for scoring four or more tries or losing within seven points -- would come into play to decide who reaches the quarterfinals.

A cancellation -- and a draw -- would see Japan qualify in second place and face New Zealand in the quarters. Ireland would top the group and face South Africa in the final eight if, as expected, it defeats Samoa. If the match goes ahead and Japan wins, it could take the theoretically easier game against the Springboks and leave Ireland to face the All Blacks.

Meanwhile, all activities scheduled for the Japanese Grand Prix were canceled Saturday, according to Formula One. Efforts are underway to ensure the race proceeds Sunday if the weather improves.
