Scotland lack perspective

There was something more than a little distasteful about the fuss made by Scotland when faced with the prospect of having their pool match with Japan cancelled owing to the effects Super Typhoon Hagibis.

As things turn out, the game is going ahead, but for the Scots to be threatening legal action had the game been cancelled showed an alarming lack of perspective.

Hagibis has killed at least 18 with many more injured and lives ruined.

Yes, going out of the World Cup owing to the weather would have been unfair. Sometimes, however, that's just the way life works out.

At the end of the day it is just rugby.

I agree completely. And now they are going home anyway.
