Eddie Jones says Scotland cannot blame Typhoon Hagibis for potential Rugby World Cup exit


If they are knocked out of the World Cup by Super Typhoon Hagibis, eddie Jones has familiarity.
The Scots will miss out on the quarter-finals when their game against hosts Japan on Sunday is cancelled due to the cyclone that is approaching.
Englands clash with France and also New Zealands match against Italy have been called away and Jones has limited sympathy for the guys of Gregor Townsend, given that all teams knew the potential to intervene.
England secured qualification with a game to spare and Jones explained:We have been discussing it all of the time, concerning the chance that this was likely to happen.
It is typhoon season. You know whats going to happen. It is typhoon season here and youve got to be prepared for it.
We had an idea it might happen and therefore youve got to accumulate points in your games to put yourself in the perfect place if happened.
We only knew that there was the prospect of a game similar to this throughout the tournament so we only wanted to put ourselves in the best place we could.
This is supposed to be a big typhoon, therefore that I dont find any other alternative that the organisers had. Thats the reason why were not worried whatsoever about the comings and goings of it, we think its the perfect choice.
New Zealand head coach Steve Hansen has echoed Jones opinion.
We have to back World Rugbys conclusion and if other teams miss out, its unfortunate, it will be unsatisfactory, Hansen explained.
If you would like to be really callous, then it is all about making sure you win the games in route through since everyone understood this could be an opportunity.
