Cape Town - Typhoon Hagibis has caused havoc in Japan with rains and strong winds lashing parts of the island nation. 

And that has forced World Rugby to cancel a number of games, declaring them 0-0 draws as they look to both player and spectator safety.

One of the nations to see their last match at the tournament cancelled was Canada who were set to play Namibia on Sunday with the match giving both teams the chance to record their first victory at the global showpiece.

Sadly, that was not be but that didn't stop the Canadian players. 

Instead of running on the pitch, they went out to help with mop-up operations in and around Kamaishi.
