      I actually am so happy Japan is doing well. They are the next host nation and by the way they are playing they will definitely make it out of the group phases

      • Matty_D

        October 5, 2015 at 09:05

        Japan have come such a long way it would have been awesome to see them go through

    Seeing JP score was cool, seeing Habana score was even better but seeing Heyneke using his hands as a calculator was incredible.

          That and continuously playing Ruan Pienaar

          • jeff

            October 5, 2015 at 09:13

            Actually to be fair he wasn’t bad on Saturday. Pienar should be used as a sub rather than in the starting 15

      It’s great to see him playing international rugby but still sad that he’s not playing for south africa

      • Tru_ant

        October 5, 2015 at 09:21
