Upset fans react to potential Scottish World Cup exit over weather conditions

Upset fans react to potential Scottish World Cup exit over weather conditions

Scotland’s World Cup quarter-final hopes are hanging in the balance as they await news on the severity of Typhoon Hagibis in Japan.

A decision will be made at 12:00am BST on Sunday morning as to whether their final group match against Japan goes ahead, and it will likely be played behind closed doors if it does.

The Scots must win this game in order to progress to the knockout stage of the competition without letting the Japanese get a bonus point, assuming Ireland beat Samoa on Saturday.

Yesterday (11 October) Scottish Rugby Union chief executive Mark Dodson announced that the union had sought legal advice to try and postpone the game by 24 hours, despite signing a participation agreement with the other nations prior to the tournament.

If the game between Scotland and Japan is cancelled, both teams will be awarded two points meaning that the hosts would reach their first ever World Cup quarter-final, while Scotland will likely finish third and exit the tournament.

Many Scottish fans and former players have not taken the news lightly, turning to social media to voice their concerns and opinions.
