C'mon Japan! This is probably the one chance they will ever have of beating the (airquotes) "All Blacks", however slim that chance may be.

I'll be wearing an ABs shirt, but I'll be cheering for both. I might even break out my JRFU wristband.

Even with 11 starting non-Japanese players an a bunch of 'never will play again' in the All Blacks - Japan has zero chance of winning.

Japan has zero chance of winning.

Yeah, that's what everyone said before they played South Africa in 2015.

And by 11, I think you mean 7. I apologise if you were exaggerating for effect.

@RM, good on you! Will be interesting to see the number of J fans who'll support the AB tmrw. Went to a Maori v Japan game a few years ago and -shock horror- many J fans were rooting for your boys!

I know J ppl luv the AB & Canterbury gear but didn't expect that tbh (especially as J were underdogs/ need all the support they can get).
