Leonardo Ghiraldini and italy veterans Sergio Parisse have been denied Their Own farewell games in the Rugby World Cup because of Typhoon Hagibis
Even the Parisse, who is the captain of Italy, will be one of just 3 players. He has said hes retiring after the championship in Japan. Parisse has performed tests, the most by a hemisphere player and second about the all-time record behind by New Zealands Richie McCaw.
That is one of two matches organisers have cancelled because of the danger of Hagibis, although he had been put to say goodbye from the entire world champion All Blacks at Toyota on Saturday. England against France can be off.
Italy hooker Ghiraldini, that recovered from injury to play with at the World Cup, was expected to be given Conor OShea for his farewell to a spell by trainer . Ghiraldini, whos also 34, has performed for Italy for 13 years.
When news broke the game had been cancelled he allegedly shed tears on Thursday in the group camp in Toyota.
Italy had a mathematical likelihood of sneaking to the quarter-finals but would have needed a bonus-point triumph over the All Blacks, a group they have never conquered in 15 attempts.
