The All Blacks final Rugby World Cup pool match against Italy has been called off due to the arrival of Super Typhoon  Hagibis in Japan on Saturday.

Equivalent to a Category 5 hurricane, packing winds of up to 305kmh, and boasting a 55 kilometre wide eye, citizen safety is a major concern.

RNZ's Joe Porter gives Karyn an update from Tokyo about the changing rugby schedule and the approaching mega-weather.
