    I thought the same, although I heard one of them actually talking in person to 5 Live this evening saying it was just a knock and they'd be fine, even for the Uruguay game.

    He had a brilliant, strong Welsh accent which I know Davies has, but then I've never heard Adams speak before I don't think.

    From what I can see the typhoon doesn’t look like hitting Kumamoto where wales are playing, they’re releasing a statement 4am tomorrow

    The report of the France game being cancelled mentions that they are looking at ALL four for the Sunday games:

    Every effort' to play Sunday matches
    The typhoon is expected to clear by Sunday morning, when tournament bosses will stage a comprehensive review to see if the four scheduled games - including Scotland's crunch clash with hosts Japan - can proceed as planned.

    If Wales match is cancelled, then Australia will top the Group and have the easier route by sheer luck.

    Ahh, I've just found this which confirms Wales wouldn't be affected at all thanks to the Bonus Point won yesterday:


    A bonus point victory over Fiji on Wednesday would leave them unable to caught as pool winners, even if the Uruguay game was declared a 0-0 draw. That's because Australia would only able to match their points tally and would lose out on head-to-head having been beaten by Wales in Tokyo.

    To save you from my confusion, it's also two points for a draw!!

    if our game is cancelled we get two points which puts us on 16 points as it’s 2 points for a draw. Australia are on 11 points so a bonus point win would only match our 16 points and as we beat them we would be top :thumbup: I would be quite happy for that to happen so the players get a longer rest with no more injuries by playing the extra game

    Yeah it's a shame both England and New Zealand will get extra rest time, plus England v France would have been a good game to watch.

    Never fear though as it’s the All Blacks if they get through Aussies :hehe:

    I agree with Brian Moore these games should be played 24 hrs later. I met him once and he said to me that he played rugby all over the world but there's nowhere tougher than a midweek game in Bedlinog :hehe: he laughed and said there's some big hard boys up that way.
