Japanese was always conscious about their country but since March 2011, it's different. They are eager to put back japanese people on their foot by showing victory and courage.

missing their head coach and 15 players because of the British and Irish Lions tour. Errrr there was nobody home, good timing.

It's true Wales is the most represented country in the Lions team, but following England's collapse to them in the Six Nations final this put a smile on my face.

So let me get this right, most, if not all, the tries were scored by non-Japanese players on the Japanese team against a B-rate Welsh team? Way to go, Samurai!!

Good to see an old South Sydney boy Craig Wing pop up and get a shirt for Japan! He was a great player a decade back in the NRL and earned many NSW and Australia jerseys. I had no idea he was now eligible for Japan. Onya, Wingy! Love to see you do well for Japan - and hopefully play against the wallabies in future!

Yep, despite South African born Andries Pretorius, and half Iranian Josh Navidi doing their best for Wales, sadly they did lose.

And the only Japanese player to score points for the Japanese team was the one guy who punted a few over the post?

Yeah it was a good game actually, and well deserved win for Japan.

Hopefully this will fuel some demand for Rugby here, been missing quality rugby since Sydney..
