Image result for Greig Laidlaw says Scotland have trained to adapt to varying match conditions

Greig Laidlaw insisted Scotland will handle Typhoon Tapah before declaring the Dark Blues are primed to whip up a World Cup storm of their own.

A powerful weather system building over the East China Sea is due to strike the south west of Japan this weekend.

But its effects may also be felt as far inland as Yokohama in the north east, meaning the Scots could find themselves facing lashing rain and gale-force winds as they square off against Ireland in Sunday 's Pool A clash.

So far the forecasters have been unable to predict whether the worst of the conditions will arrive by the time the showdown at the International Stadium kicks off at 4:45pm local time (8:45am BST).

But Laidlaw insists Scotland will be ready for whatever comes their way.

"We're in the same boat as everybody in that we're told there is a storm sitting off Japan somewhere but whether it comes in or not, [we're not sure]," he said.

"We've planned that into our game plan and if the weather does come in we can flick to a system that suits that weather.

"That's been a big part of our preparation. We've worked closely with the coaches to make sure we're all happy and can adapt quickly. If the conditions change, it's certainly not going to be a surprise to us."
