Well deserved win. I thought Japan showed marked improvement at the set piece especially at scrumtime which is traditionally seen as one of Italy's strong points.

Absolutely agree, goldorak. That, and some classic Japanese tries. Mafi's try in the first half and Tamura's kick pass were particularly good, I thought.
