Japan, historically, has battled in this tournament.I believe Japan U20 to do well’ish. The only team Japan Junior couldn’t beat going into the World Cup was The Warriors (and they are mostly senior, Fiji A). Their universities also slapped some European touring teams which is an oddity going by expectations.
Good to see strong pools, I don’t know about Georgia or Italy, but they are there…
I don’t see Japan to win Australia, New Zealand or Wales, but I don’t see them being humiliated. Seeing the pools, I don’t see any easy pool, every team will have to battle to earn 1st or 2nd place.Japan, historically, has battled in this tournament.
Italy didn't have a bad 6 nations beating Scotland in the tournaments final fixture.
Baby Boks played Georgia in a home series earlier this year, beat them 55-14 and 48-23.
Yeah, would be great to see Damian dominate this tournament! He's looked so good in Super rugby and is on the brink of full Bok selection so his talent is undeniable. He could be the general at 10 that leads the baby Boks to glory!! No pressure Damian!Ah, was going to start a thread. Thanks for doing it!
Yeah, looking forward to this, especially to see how Damian Willemse goes. Was meant to be traveling to Jhb tomorrow but now only on Thursday which means I'll get to watch tomorrow eve.
Yeah, we've already mentioned Damian. Look out for Salmaan Moerat at lock, Gianni Lombard at 15 and Rikus Pretorius at 12. Wandisile Simelane at 13 also played last year and could make a big impact this year.Yay! This is a tournament I enjoy following.... always exciting to see the new talent coming through.....
Yeah, the Japs have taken on scores in the 80's in past tournaments. Hopefully their game has improved. God knows they been ploughing resources into their game over the last 4-5 years...I don’t see Japan to win Australia, New Zealand or Wales, but I don’t see them being humiliated.
