Mako Vunipola expressed his concern for family members who had travelled to Tokyo in support of England’s rugby world cup fixture against France, after the nation’s biggest hurricane for 61 years approached landfall on Saturday.
The match originally scheduled for Saturday was cancelled and the England prop, together with his squad were flown 700 miles from the area, as 1,000,000 people were warned to leave their homes ahead of Typhoon Higibis.
Vunipola said he feared for the relatives who had remained in Tokyo saying: “We have families and friends there. That was probably the hardest thing to deal with – realising that the game wouldn’t be on and trying to make plans for them.”
“Japan are pretty used to typhoons and they have regulations to deal with it, so it’s just a case of them doing as they’re told and us hoping and praying that they’re safe.”
“I just hope the damage isn’t too much and people are OK,” he added.
Exeter Chiefs Luke Cowen Dickie, took to social media to warn fans in Tokyo to “stay safe”.
In a video posted on twitter he said: “We are sorry we can’t be there playing … but the main priority is that you are safe.”
To all the England fans in Tokyo…

WHAT DO YOU THINK?- We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
What is your response?
