Japan’s national training squad has beaten the Hurricanes B 66-21 today. Next week this team will play against the Western Force, to promote Rapid Rugby, and then the squad should be systematically made available to the Sunwolves.
Will be happy to see the Japanese players return to the Super Rugby game.
Nobody is worrying about the Stormers bottoming out on the log, and next year without much quality there will be many questions with no answers. Our domestic rugby is more or less dead thanks to bureaucracy and money being allocated to the upper tiers.
My best guess is that there will be a 'transformational' shake-up at the Stormers.
The official line is that Swys returned for medical reasons and that they then decided that, in the absence of the coach, they wanted their senior players on the park. Sounds plausible to me but in the absence of a definitive statement conspiracies will abound
