POSTER OF ENGLAND-FRANCE MATCH STORY: People prepare for torrential rain and powerful wind on Thursday (October 10) as a super typhoon Hagibis headed north over the Pacific towards Japan's main island.

People in Kyonan Town and other towns in Chiba prefecture, which are still recovering from a devastating typhoon Faxai that struck a month ago, started to put blue tarps on damaged roofs, to prevent the water leaks.

Rugby World Cup organisers have cancelled Saturday's game between England and France as well as New Zealand's match against Italy due to the risk from the typhoon, while a Sunday game between hosts Japan and Scotland is in doubt.

Typhoon Hagibis is expected to pass over the bigger Tokyo areas on Saturday (October 12).
