But I think it's the right decision in terms of safety for the players and obviously the fans as well.

It's a shame but England went through anyway to the quarterfinals, so it's okay." 5.

(SOUNDBITE) (English) ENGLAND RUGBY FAN, TIM NAYLOR, SAYING: "Yeah, very disappointed about the match being cancelled.

But we're very lucky today though.

Met most of the team.

And they've have been very force coming with photographs etc.

It is really nice.

Had a nice chat with (coach) Eddie (Jones) as well." 6.

TEAM BUS LEAVING STORY: England rugby squad fans on Thursday (October 10) said they were "disappointed' in the cancellation of their team's match against France originally scheduled for Saturday (October 12).

Rugby World Cup organisers announced earlier on Thursday that the matches of New Zealand vs Italy as well as England vs France would be cancelled due to risks from Typhoon Hagibis.

"We are disappointed not to see the game on Saturday.

But I think it's the right decision in terms of safety for the players and obviously the fans as well," said fan Nigel Piper.

The entire England rugby squad departed Tokyo on Thursday for a two-week training session in Miyazaki before their quarterfinal match.

England and France had already booked a spot in the quarter-finals but the decision to cancel Italy's match eliminates them from contention.

A win over the All Blacks in Toyota could have taken the Italians through.

New Zealand now tops the group, ahead of South Africa.
