England's Rugby World Cup Pool C match against France this  Saturday has been called off because of Typhoon Hagibis.

World Rugby is expected to provide official confirmation of the cancellation later today.

Hagibis is moving towards Japan and expected to make landfall this Saturday.

England were due to meet France in Yokohama. 

There is yet any confirmation on Scotland's match against Japan, which is scheduled to take place in the same stadium this Sunday.

Canceled matches are declared a draw with both sides awarded two points each.

The cancellation means Eddie Jones' side will progress to the quarterfinal and are expected to face Australia, with Wales to top Pool D.

England will take on France at 8.15 pm this Saturday while Japan will face Scotland at 10.45 pm on Sunday
