Eddie Jones says his England side has to be”elastic” in the face of intense weather during the World Cup in Japan.
Typhoon Faxai is now due to hit on parts of Japan throughout the weekend and is now sweeping across Asia.
England are expected to depart Japan on Sunday and Jones claims his side’ve to”ride “, while contingency plans are in place prior to the tournament starts on 20 September.
“After the typhoon comes, you simply can’t go outside,” explained the ex-Japan mentor.
“It is basically a lock-down also it can vary between being very violent to very mild”
Their warm-up schedule was finished by the 2003 winners in St James’ Park with a comfy 37-0 win over Italy.
Organisers of the tournament have proposed for the possibility of having to relocate teams or move games to different venues.
Before confronting the USA in Kobe, england start their effort against Tonga at Sapporo, and Jones anticipates conditions into the arid pitches his side have played in their four warm-up matches, while both stadiums have roofs.
The 59-year-old added:”We have got thoughts about what we do whether a typhoon ceased us training outside.
“We will train artificial turf indoors.”
Jones has coached club teams in Japan prior to being named as head coach of the team in 2012, directing the Cherry Blossoms into a shock victory over South Africa in the 2015 Rugby World Cup.
And also the England boss was watching because the Springboks avenged that defeat Friday, in their very first meeting as the pool sport in Brighton.
“It was quite hot and quite humid,” he explained. “There was plenty of lost ball, it was rather fatty, and that could increase the sum of hanging”

Typhoon Faxai will bring potentially damaging winds, flooding rain and heavy to the Tokyo area on Sunday into Monday before quickly heading out to sea.
It is impossible to predict what effect this may have on any tournament infrastructure and preparations but the typhoon itself will likely be gone by the time.
