Owen Farrell hands England major boost for France showdown


- Fears over the final weekend of  Rugby World Cup pool action intensified today as ‘super typhoon’ Hagibis continued on its course to Tokyo, which has also been struck by earthquakes.  No World Cup match has ever been cancelled before, but the prospect of England’s pool decider against France in Yokohama on Saturday becoming the first is increasingly real. World Rugby are monitoring the situation and will hold a press conference tomorrow.
