PERFORMANCE OF THE WEEK

Japan. No questions. A stunning performance by the RWC 2019 hosts over Ireland, ranked the number 1 team in World Rugby heading into Rugby World Cup 2019.

Who can forget the Miracle of Brighton at RWC 2015? Miracles aren’t supposed to repeat. Try and tell the Brave Blossoms that! Relentless in defence, determined in attack - a simply stunning team performance from Japan put them in pole position in Pool A, 2 wins from 2 matches with two key matches left against Samoa and Scotland, a potential decider in the battle for a quarter finals spot.

Undoubtedly everyone’s ‘second favourite’ team at RWC 2015, Japan have grabbed the hearts of the rugby world once again and who would deny them an historic spot in the knockout stages now.
