Scottish Rugby has contested if a misconduct charge from World Rugby has been”right”.
Remarks made by chief executive Mark Dodson with Japan about the possible conclusion of the World Cup match have been referred to a different disputes committee.
Dodson had hinted at legal action, once the game was in doubt because of Typhoon Hagibis.
The game went ahead and Scotland lost 28-21 to depart at the group stage.
A Scottish Rugby spokesperson stated:”Scottish Rugby once again expresses its sincere condolences to the people of Japan and all those affected by Typhoon Hagibis which struck last weekend.
“We have been able to communicate our very best wishes directly to the mayor of Yokohama and also the chairman of the Japanese Rugby Union. We stand together with the people of Japan.
“After receipt of correspondence from World Rugby, Scottish Rugby verifies it has received a notice of complaint from Rugby World Cup Ltd.. Scottish Rugby is querying if the matter is an appropriate one for the bringing of misconduct charges.
“If misconduct proceedings are to move, Scottish Rugby looks forward to getting a reasonable hearing in this issue. No additional comment would be appropriate at this time.”
