A very important win for the japan fans to keep faith in a good outcome for the Blossoms during RWC. It was close. Too close for comfort as Russia was leading the entire game and will gain self confidence for the RWC opening game. Still Japan is the clear favourite to get off to a winning start. A pity for the organisation that HKG did not make it as it would have brought thousands of HKG fans to the stadium. Officially representing 2 of the finalists, one in the same group as Japan, and as a japan resident, i want Japan to do well as the future of rugby in Japan largely depends on a good outcome.

Saw a short part of this as I was flicking channels but it looked as though Japan were well on their way to losing. Congratulations all round!
