Japanese young people will come to play the 1st World Tournament of School Rugby in eight months. They will proudly represent the Land of the Rising Sun. There is no doubt that they will make a strong impression, like the Japanese national team, which has been so high performing for several years. Last November the “Brave Blossoms” confronted the XV of France at the Stadium of Toulouse during a spectacular match. We remember that, despite their defeat, the Japanese players remained on the pitch for a long time to greet the audience, demonstrating a well-known extraordinary state of mind.
