Japan’s incredible team try

In the Test match against Scotland, Japan went on the attack from their own tryline to go on to score a brilliant length-of-the-field 5-pointer. Brilliant skill by the Japanese.

Jantjies’ pinpoint cross-kick

Springbok flyhalf linked up excellently with winger JP Pietersen thanks to a perfectly placed crossfield kick that resulted in a try for South Africa.
