Your ranking is flawed from the outset dear friend. Since Mitsubishi Sagamihara Dynaboars where Shane Willimas evolves, does not play in the Top League but Top East League (Japanese 2nd division) ...

Else if you follow the Japanese rugby there is a Panasonic Wild Knights explosive / Toshiba Brave Lupus Sunday. I advise you to follow the young scrum half Takahiro Ogawa (arrived from Nihon University team this summer). This little guy is very talented. I'll ad in Japanese selection very quickly in number 3 (behind Tanaka and Hiwasa).

Hitoshi Ono mistake. But I remind you that Fumiaki Tanaka is currently playing for Panasonic and Nemani Nadolo power NEC Green Rockets ... Fumiaki Tanaka was the man of the match in the stunning victory against Suntory Sungoliath Wild Knights last Saturday. You have the Top League? The university championship? The high school tournament? I should not even have to remind you that many players are in a year in the Top League and Super Rugby, both championships being short and a further season.
