Posted in: Japan to play All Blacks in Tokyo in October See in context

This could be a good chance for Japan to get the score to a respectable outcome if things keep going the way the are with AB results and predictably…Not looking forward to the Northern Hemisphere tour one iota but is needed to blood new players…Maybe Ian Fosters masterplan for next year fooling everyone into thinking the blackness have lost their mojo ( Or they just have :) )

Hard being an ABS fan these days, the rest off the world has figured out the playbook and NZ not coming up with ideas..The Irish got it quickly, just smother the first receiver from a fairly onside position and shut down the backs...

Let the Public Enquiry begin!!

My favourite is the pedestrian crossing waiting game. I've had numerous occasions where I've waited to cross to my sons kindergarten on a busy road, at a pedestrian crossing, hand up in the air ,usually around the 20th car will stop...

On the other hand,my friend was fined for not stopping at a pedestrian crossing recently ,where a woman was waiting, with the police standing next to her ready to pounce on this kind of perpetrator, first time I've ever heard of that.. This place does my head in sometimes..

Its been a long long road for the Rugby Championship teams, on the road for an extended amount of time and in travel bubbles- Im sure the Argies, SA, Oz and the All Blacks will be glad to hit the Sth Hemisphere summer soon...Well done to the Northern teams...

And to add to my previous comments, people talk about Rugby mercenaries..Well check the player roster for yesterday's game and although not as bad as Scotland or Japan..you will find several Kiwis fast tracked into the Ireland squad to bolster their team.. James Lowe was turning out for the Chiefs and even the Maori All Blacks not so long ago, couldn't get into the big time and boom, he's an Irishman now in less than a year! Maybe Im a Sore loser..yeah nah yeah...

I think the Haka being a "Funny Dance" is both disrespectful and ignorant. If you were to visit my local Marae in New Zealand and be greeted with a Powhiri and experience a Haka, would you laugh at that too??

Maybe Fiji, Samoa & Tonga should stop their funny dances too??

Any international company that hasn't moved out of that dump doesn't deserve any sympathy for what will happen to them.

That's a bit rough, fair nuff international companies not getting out but labelling HK a dump is a bit heavy handed for HongKongers still there busting theire bums off working for those international companies..

Nz beats Italy 47-9 and its their worst game of the season according to the scribes and I concur, bit of a shambles.

SA just beat Wales and Ireland blow Japan off the park...Next week should be the Litmus test for the Abs v Ireland but shame Abs couldn't play the poms!

It's embarrassing, I'm getting emails from New Zealand saying "Hey that guy went to school with my son at Otago Boys High School and he's turning out for Japan"... Jamie Joseph has stated that to be competitive Japan needs bigger players to compete but c'mon, now it's not Just Top League where you can earn your pension, it's also at international level...

Aotearoa relies heavily on tourism and needs that sector to stimulate the economy. Even mainstay farming has been hit hard because of the shortage of foreign workers coming into help out. Like Akula said, the mandate is to get to 80% then get people thru the turnstiles..

Love the Blackness but it was a sham. Mt Smart Stadium to appeal to Sth Aucklanders but stadium half empty, Tongan players paying for MIQ themselves, hard to get worked up for that one :(

Look at his Jersey , Glaringly obvious hes eligible to play for Japan. Take the blinkers off mate and get used to the fact Japan doesn't produce physical specimens to match the bulk of a lot of international teams, but in saying that Himeno had a cracker season for the Highlanders!!

This is turning into a farce, buy the best players possible and totally shaft the weakest opposition who don't have resources to match this obviously well oiled and Cashed up machine. Sad state of affairs for the little man just starting his rugby in Japan, work you bum off in the Japanese system, then a truckload of foreign rugby players decide to take up Japanese citizenship and deny you your spot you've worked half your life for...just sad..

Posted in: Japan to launch new professional rugby league in 2022 See in context

Japan has more registered players than some of the home Unions particularly Ireland, Wales & Scotland.

I agree with Mr Kipling and have always been been frustrated by the need to introduce foreign players to bolster the ranks at the expense of promising local players. That mindset of acquiring big names on their off contract is more common place these days and quite unfair to local talent. Something needs to change in Japan as the pension plan for semi retiring Intl Rugby players., the system is just getting used and has become a joke imo and even players have gone on the record to say Japan is an easy out and paycheck...easy on the body good for the wallet...

That was a painful watch from a Kiwi POV. First international for an age, rusty blah blah. Glad to see the boys having a beer together after the game and Michael Hooper getting a congratulations speech for his 100th for Australia, good Anzac camaraderie there...
