Pushed us close at Twickenham for the the first hour - think it was 16-15 before we ran in a few tries late on when conditioning came into play
And they're launching a new club system off of the back of it. They're doing everything right atm, and are growing - I don't get why you're so down on them. Of any of the Tier 2 sides they're the only one who's shown consistent improvement over the last RWC cycle and picked up a number of big scalps.
I'm not being down on them. I hope their sucess grows the game as a whole. I hope the new club system you mentioned draws in local talent and other Asian players to boost the region.
Id like Japan to be the benchmark for emerging nations in the region.
Don't you think that would be better for world rugby?
If Japan join the Rugby Championship or the 6 nation's, realistically when could they win it ?
