Statement: Update on status of Namibia v Canada match in Kamaishi

World Rugby and the Japan Rugby 2019 Organising Committee notes and supports the strong recommendation issued by the Governor of Iwate Prefecture & the Mayor of Kamaishi warning all residents and visitors to seek safe shelter.

Safety is our number one consideration and with Typhoon Hagibis predicted to impact Kamaishi in the early hours of Sunday morning, we continue to be in close contact with the city and the local authorities regarding the viability of hosting the match on Sunday as scheduled.

We have advised the Namibia and Canada teams of the current situation and potential of cancellation, and our message to fans not currently in Kamaishi is not to travel before confirmation of the match status following a full assessment of the venue and associated infrastructure early on Sunday morning.
