Japan: World Rugby Chair expresses 'deepest sympathies' after deadly typhoon

Japón, Tokyo
15 octubre 2019 a las 13:44 GMT +00:00 · Publicado

World Rugby Chairperson Bill Beaumont hailed the Japanese people's "strength and resilience" amid the worst typhoon in a decade as "an inspiration to us all," during a press conference called to address the chaos left in the storm's wake in Tokyo on Tuesday.

"On behalf of World Rugby I'd like to express our deepest sympathies to those who have lost ones and been affected by Typhoon Hagibis," said the former England captain. "It's certainly been an emotional, dramatic and challenging few days for everyone."

Beaumont went on to praise Namibian and Canadian players for their efforts in the clean-up effort just hours after they had learned their pool game had been cancelled due to the adverse conditions. "We also applaud the spirit, in which the Canadian-Namibian teams assisted with the clean-up in Kamaishi just hours after learning that their match had been cancelled. That reflects the best of our game," said Beaumont.

World Rugby CEO Brett Gosper described some of the comments from national unions around typhoon-related game cancellations and threats thereof as "unhelpful and "disappointing."

At least 69 people were killed by the typhoon, with some 14,000 homes left without running water and 376,000 without power, according to reports.
