The organisers of this Rugby World Cup and Formula 1 bosses are tracking a strong typhoon forming to the south of Japan that could bring ferocious winds and torrential rain over the weekend.
Japans Meteorological Agency (JMA) says Typhoon Hagibis is expected to reach the highest level of allabusive.
The JMA added:It might be the strongest to hit Japan this season.
World Rugby states its heading in anorth-westerly direction and can deliver disturbance to southern Japan.
The typhoon is predicted to hit the island of Kyushu on Saturday.
There are two fixtures on the island over the weekend – some crucial match for Ireland against Samoa on Saturday in Fukuoka, while Wales face Uruguay in Kumamoto on Sunday.
World Rugby insists it has arobust contingency plan set up should the adverse weather influence tournament fixtures.
Since scoreless draws, however, any games at the World Cup due to the weather are enrolled.
Ireland need a success against Samoa to make sure their passage through to the quarter-finals.
Irelands defence trainer Andy Farrell stated World Rugby is enthusiastic as we are to get this game performed, adding:The weather forecast changes all of the time anyhow, so we wont likely know until 48 hours out in the match.
The boys havent even talked about it we just go from day to day, get on with our preparations.
Wales may have sealed their place at the quarter-finals before they face Uruguay with success over Fiji on Wednesday, also head coach Warren Gatland says that he does not need tosquander any adverse energy on something which I can not change.
Weve had any upgrades in the past from World Rugby about possible weather things, and we are going to deal with that when it comes, Gatland told BBC Sport.
We will not be considering that, we will just be focusing on the sport.
Meanwhile, motorsports governing body the FIA can also be monitoring the situation before the Japanese Grand Prix in Suzuka.
In 2014 the race was affected by bad weather, and has been stopped prematurely when Jules Bianchi dropped suffering severe head injuries which led to his departure.
