RUGBY: Scotland is questioning whether the sport’s controlling body’s misconduct charge is appropriate

Scotland is questioning whether the sport’s controlling body’s misconduct charge is appropriate, following their comments about a deadly typhoon.

World Rugby has taken Scotland to a disputes panel over what it called disappointing remarks before their final pool match against Japan.

The game was threatened with cancellation because of Typhoon Hagibis.

Scottish Rugby chief Mark Dodson warns of legal action, even though the match went ahead and they lost 28-21 to the hosts.
