Beat Ireland 19-12 with a phenomenal performance.
Defensively excellent, discipline was top notch and attacked Ireland superbly....... Brilliant game all round.

I drink and forget stuff!

Complete agreement.

I know I predicted them to upset Scotland, but I never saw this coming. I knew going into the tournament that Jamie Joseph had rather smartly taken over control of the Sunwolves B team and signed up all of the Japanese players to Sunwolves contracts. He has therefore pretty much been coaching the national side as one team pretty much every week for the last year. Giving the players a massive bond going into the tournament. On that basis alone I knew they had the potential to sting someone. But full credit to them as I didn't see them slaying Ireland...

Ireland looked like they were cruising after scoring two tries but Japan came back strongly and Michael Leitch coming off the bench galvanised the crowd and the team!
Scotland must be worried after this result, particularly if Japan beat Samoa next Saturday!
