Scheduling a rugby test at the hottest time of day, at the height of Summer? Madness and sheer stupidity.

Good luck anyway to the Brave Blossoms.

The heat is favouring Japan. Not stupid at all.

I thought rugby was a winter sport.

The host nation should be forced to sign contracts stating that they bear any and all responsibility for injury and/or death resulting from weather conditions during play. They decide the time and date, and they decide to go on with the game regardless of poor conditions, so they deserve any blame that may come their way should unfortunate incidents occur as a result. Why on earth does Japan INSIST on holding outdoor, physically exhausting sports in peak summer, MID-DAY conditions?
