Japanese side looks quite experimental. Does not it?

No it is the best team possible with the injuries of Tatekawa and Yamada behind. Adds the absences of the Nunomaki, Fujita, Lemeki also if you want. Matsushima is on the wing with the absence of Yamada and Noguchi confirms that he is probably the best 15 Japanese at the moment. For years we follow the young Noguchi and he hit in the eye of Jamie Joseph, normal. The real construction site is mainly in second line (Ono, Usami, Kotaki, Helu, Yatabe, etc ...?).

Tous les joueurs que tu citent (mis à part peut-être Kensuke Hatakeyama) ne sont pas dans les plans de Jamie Joseph. Il faut arrêter de regarder vers 2015. C'est une nouvelle équipe du Japon désormais mis à part encore quelques cadres.

All the players you mention (except Kensuke Hatakeyama) are not in the plans of Jamie Joseph. It is necessary to stop looking towards 2015. It is a new team of Japan.

Le Japon n'a pas de souci en première ligne, les nouveaux joueurs sont au niveau. Le souci est en deuxième ligne: Thompson à la retraite, Ono vieillissant (et souvent blessé), les autres joueurs pas encore au niveau. Le vrai chantier du Japon pour 2019 est là.

Agree. I watched Japan vs Romania. The Japanese side looked great in the first half, however they became very fatigue in the second due to lack of physical strength.

All the best to both teams, but my money is on the Irish blokes.

I m commenting only what I've seen in Japan vs Romania. Japan props collapsed ALL the scrums. Maybe was just a strategy and their scrummaging is better but in this particular game they look really bad.

Japan look completely disinterested in this match. 24-3 to Ireland after 30 mins.

Edit: Make that 29-3. Man in the sin bin too.

I was expecting more from Japan. 31-3 in a half time is huge.

There's zero intensity. One thing I can say about Japan when they are in form they can be good and competitive, but when they're not in form the leak points easily.

More mistakes and more leaked points. Team looks like they've never played together.

+: Noguchi (meilleur japonais du match), Fukuoka, Tokunaga

A noter les bonnes rentrées de Matsuhashi, Nagare et Matsuda.

-: mêlée, défense, trop de jeu au pied, cadres en dessous de tout

Les cadres de l'équipe (Leitch, Tui, Mafi, Horie, Tamura, Matsushima) vont devoir se remettre en question et vite!!!

A deux ans de la coupe du monde, cette lourde défaite confirme que Jamie Joseph a encore un gros chantier devant lui.

Yea yea we all understand "that". Japonia ro egeti wvriltvaleba ar iyos uketesi moednis xedva eqnebodat. :D

Anyways Japan finished 2nd half 19-19! So how this Japanese manage to play sometimes so good is unknown.
I mean their Coach is descent, they lack some massive players, not good props and Locks, normal wings, and good 15.
I hope Japan will prepare good for this RWC.

I'd say the coaches will be very disappointed with Japans display. They didn't get going until around 60 minutes into the game. When they did get going they ran in some nice tries. I'd expect next weeks game to be much closer.

To be fair, Ireland didn't really allow Japan to play their game. Only when Ireland were visibly tiring did Japan manage to up their game.
