Rugby : England boss thanks 'typhoon gods' after World Cup game axed

TOKYO: England coach Eddie Jones said Super Typhoon Hagibis had given his team a 'great opportunity' on Thursday (Oct 10) after their final group ...

England, unbeaten at this tournament, can now look forward to a quarter-final in Oita on Oct 19, with their likely opponents set to be Jones's native Australia.

Jones added that he expected the injured Billy Vunipola, Joe Marler and Jack Nowell all to be available next weekend.

"It is difficult for them because it was going to be a special occasion and we feel for them and we are lucky to have such great supporters."

Meanwhile All Blacks coach Steve Hansen said the cancellation of the world champions' final group game against Italy in Toyota was a"no-brainer".

"I just hope people don't remember the World Cup for this. It's been a marvellous tournament so far".

"The players have to get their heads round the fact we're not playing and the coaching group have to get our heads round the fact we're not playing and adjust our preparation accordingly."

The two points New Zealand have received for a match deemed a draw mean they will advance as Pool B winners ahead of South Africa.
