England’s clash against France in Yokohama on Saturday has been brought to a halt – the first time a fixture has been called off in the 32-year history of the tournament.
It comes as devastating Category 5 Typhoon Hagibis barrels towards the Japanese mainland and is set to smash into the islands over the weekend.
The match was set to take place at Yokohama Stadium on Saturday night, which is when Haggis will be expected to make landfall.
Meteorologists said winds will most likely exceed 160mph.
