Pas un mot sur Kazuki Himeno qui est la grosse révélation (attendu) de ce début de saison. Un peu décevant.

Some news about Sunwolves: https://english.kyodonews.net/news/2017 ... lling.html

- SANZAAR will get more involved in running the team
- money spent on players will double
- they will bring in 4 marquee players
- they will get to travel much less because they'll be in the Australian conference
- they will still have to "host" 3 of their games in Singapore

Interesting article, thanks. With the uncertainty in South Africa and Australia it is pretty essential that Super Rugby get the Sunwolves competitive and move towards further Japanese sides in the next 5-10 years.

The continuation of the three games in Singapore will hurt them and I don't like the sound of there being a smaller squad - sounds like the Top League is being prioritised more.

Nothing wrong with capturing these players for future international duty and for the next couple of years before the residency rules change and it becomes harder.

I posted mainly for Taylor, I know some years ago when he played Super Rugby he was considered for ABs. Good for him to have a chance as test player.

To be honest I'm more saddened to see a Korean player in the list.

So he Korean. I suspected that but I wasn't sure. Yeah, this is sad tbh. On the other hand, from player's POV, probably this is his only chance to play at a RWC.

Interesting article on foreign T2 players in Wellington club rugby.
It's a bit of a strange article, in that they have merged a generic nationwide immigration data release into a local club rugby story. I think this news site is a journalism school at a polytechnic. But is interesting for those interested in T2 rugby.


http://www.newswire.co.nz/2016/12/forei ... mpetition/

About 20 Japanese enhancing their rugby skills in Wellington were among a record number of visitors to New Zealand in the year to September. Visitor numbers increased by 11.4% to nearly 3.4 million for the past 12 months, up from just over 3 million in 2015 and 2.8 million from 2014. The figures were released in Statistics New Zealand’s monthly International Travel and Migration report. This year’s Wellington rugby club competition saw the Japanese influx among the 3500 registered players. Some of them play in the professional leagues in Japan.

"We have overseas players come and play and it adds to the flavour of our club competition” says Wellington Rugby Union head of community rugby Will Caccia-Birch. “They get to experience the Wellington rugby way of life. “If we can provide them with an experience then Wellington rugby benefits from that,” Will says. Clubs like Johnsonville RFC and Upper Hutt Rams hosted a range of players from Fiji, Samoa, America, Japan, and France.

The Johnsonville club welcomed players from Europe, America, Cyprus and the Pacific Islands, says premier assistant coach Garry Archer, who is himself originally from the UK. “They see rugby as a big part of the culture. “They are just looking for the overall experience, they look for it as part of a New Zealand experience. “Other ones are looking to come to New Zealand to further their career.” Garry says the players walked away from the club enjoying their rugby despite the results not entirely going their way at Johnsonville. For example, George Shaouna has taken what he has learned from playing at Johnsonville and is applying it for the Cyprus national team.

Upper Hutt Rams had players from Samoa, Fiji and Japan play across all their teams. Fillipe Rayasi, development officer from Upper Hutt Rams, says the players brought enthusiasm and a willingness to learn. Fillipe says the players from Fiji and Samoa came to study in Auckland. “They wanted the challenge of playing club rugby so we brought them down. “They loved the experience,” says Fillipe.

World XV played South Africa recently too. Is this a institution like the Barbarians or just a random name used often by independent organizers?

My understanding is the 'World XV' name isn't used by anyone in any official capacity, it's not like the Barbarians which have a proper board in place. Pretty much anyone can create a World XV team and call it such.

World XV used the same badge and the same colours of their match against South Africa. It looks as if they were creating a tradition.

I don't understand why they would do that. I understand lettering their best players player for the Sunwolves but scrapping the league for all of 2019? Makes no sense.

Good conditions for the match today. Hopefully Japan put up a good performance, although I'm not exactly hoping for another South Africa-style result, lol.
