Rugby World Cup 2019

 

The Host team of the Rugby World Cup 2019 is the Japan national rugby union team, the only team from Asia. Russia quailed from Europe 1 region. Cherry Blossoms and Brave Blossoms are the Japan Rugby nicknames given to the team by their fans, have Sakura in their Logo. Japan rugby team founded back in 1926 and played a first international match in 1932. Currently, Japan rugby team rank 9 in the World Ranking. Japan is in Pool A with Russia, Ireland, Scotland, and Samoa. They will play Russia in the first match of World Cup 2019 at Tokyo Stadium after Opening Ceremony.

Rugby is a difficult game and only hard-work and techniques can lead the team to success and win. The above lines somehow suit Japan Rugby team which kicking-off their luck since the first Rugby World Cup but they couldn’t move further than the Pool Stage. So, the same happens in last RWC 2015 in England where they only came close to South Africa but in last moments. They won against Samoa with good margin but against a good side they lost. They are now hosting side of World Cup 2019 maybe this will change their destination. Let’s hope for a new visionary team in the 2019 Rugby World Cup. Below given are the last World cup records of Japan team.
