Japan vs Scotland: How Rugby World Cup cancellation might give Scots quarter-final place

Amid the morass of Super Typhoon Hagibis, without even kicking a ball the chaos it has yielded on the warranted Scotland outrage in their possible elimination and Rugby World Cup 2019 in Japan, 1 factor has seemingly been abandoned.
A Japan vs Scotland Pool A cancellation, and draw that is consequent along with 2 competition points apiece could actually be enough for both sides based on Saturdays result between Ireland and Samoa.
Scotland to learn fate on Saturday
As Scots get legal advice, world Rugby disappointed
While two scheduled Saturday Tests: England vs France at Yokohama and New Zealand vs Italy in Toyota City have now been cancelled an unprecedented step in World Cup history – Ireland vs Samoa at Fukuoka is going.
If Joe Schmidts costs shed that Evaluation without picking up bonus-point – an effect which would constitute a shock – theyd stay on their present Pool A points total of 11.
While Japan have 14 scotland now have 10 points. So were Ireland to shed and pick nothing up, both Japan and Scotland would actually progress to the quarter-finals in case of a cancellation; Japan as pool winners with 16 points to confront South Africa in Tokyo on Sunday October 20, also Scotland as runners-up on 12 points to face New Zealand in Oita on Saturday October 19.
Were Ireland to lose as Scotland would likewise do in case of a rescue, but pick up a shedding finish on 12 points, Ireland would go through due to their record with Gregor Townsends guys.
World Rugby will declare by 12am BST Sunday whether or not Scotlands game against Japan will go ahead.
