I have lived in Japan for eight years and that's where my loyalties lie. Ryu Koliniasi Holani came to Japan at the age 15 on an academic scholarship. On arriving at high school he was asked, "What do you play?
All of the foreign-born players in the squad feel Japanese. Ryan Nicholas said having people in Japan question his right to play for the Brave Blossoms was disappointing, bearing in mind he has lived in Tokyo for seven years.
But I guess the fact is I don't look Asian. I have shed a lot of blood and sweat for Japan and earned my right to play for them like anyone else.
It's not an issue within the squad. It was only down after the first half but collapsed in the second half as the players tired.
Japan was also humiliated by Wales, losing to them thanks to turnovers and missed tackles and again collapsing in the second half.
In their last two game they made a respectable showing, losing to Fiji , going down in a tough fight, and coming with a last minute try and conversion to tie Canada in their last game.
Japan was ranked 18th in the world entering the tournament and was coached by John Kirwan, a former All-Black.
The team was affected by decisions in which three non-Japanese playersa New Zealanders and two Australians that were earmarked to play to on the team were declared ineligible at the last minute.
Japan came very close to winning the Pacific Cup in June They beat strong teams from Tonga and Samoa, the eventual winners, but lost early to Fiji.
After the tournament Japan was ranked 12th in the world. In the same meeting England got the nod to host the event.
It won the Pacific Nations Cup for the first time, in July, after defeating Fiji with a controversial try in injury time. In it first game of the World Championships Japan gave former world champion France a run for their money before falling by the misleadingly lopsided score France jumped off to early lead with a couple of quick tries but then Japan fought back from to within four poinst with 20 minutes to go before France sealed victory with a couple more tris at the end.
In the second game Japan was killed by New Zealand, That game showed that Japan still had a long way to go if it wanted to play with big boys and win their respect.
In the third game Japan was soundly beaten by Tonga Japan finished the Rugby World Cup winless with a draw against Canada. The only difference this time around was that Canada managed to pull level in the closing minutes rather than Japan, with Ander Monro scoring a late try and penalty to break Japanese hearts.
It was a game Japan should have won, as it led at halftime and with just six minutes left on the clock. But a couple of errors at key moments allowed the Canadians back into the game and ensured that Japan's long wait for a RWC win--its last and only one was in continues.
I had told myself not to get too emotional, but I did. I'm just so sorry for all the fans who have backed us. I thought we had it.
The Brave Blossoms were playing their fourth game in 17 days, while the Canadians--playing their third game--were coming off an eight-day break.

Oxford University toured Japan in , and , and Cambridge University toured there in Japan beat the Junior All Blacks 23—19 in In , England toured Japan.
The first tour by Japan of Great Britain was in Despite Japan's vast playing resources, it has a major problem in the lack of pitches, since Japan is highly urbanised and land is at a premium in the country.
The Japanese team are known for their speed and resourcefulness, [ citation needed ] but have sometimes been at a disadvantage due to their smaller size compared to Southern Hemisphere and European players.
This is changing, however. Japan have not performed too well in the top ranks of the international game. In the world cups, their first victory was over Zimbabwe , who had qualified partly as the African representative South Africa was excluded due to their racist apartheid regime.
There is also a statue of a scrum capped rugby player outside the Olympic Stadium. Statues of sports people are relatively rare in Japan.
Japan gave Wales a fright in losing by a slim five-point margin, 24—29, at Cardiff Arms Park on 2 October On 28 May a strong Japan coached by Hiroaki Shukuzawa defeated an under-strength Scotland , missing nine British Lions on tour in Australia, for the first ever time at Chichibunomiya rugby stadium , 28— Sinali Latu at No.
Scotland missed an incredible seven penalties and refused the kicking tee which was generously offered — as a surviving video of the game shows.
The Japanese have traditionally been strong proponents of amateurism in rugby union, but traditionally many of their teams have been run by major corporations, and that the players as employees of these companies were guilty of a form of " shamateurism ".
Other top international players in Japan, including the Tongan international Sinali Latu have ended up playing for the Japanese national side, while a whole range of top internationals such as Norm Hadley and Joe Stanley have become employees of various Japanese companies.
Japanese training methods have been criticised for focussing more on discipline than initiative. It had been hoped his clout would help secure the Rugby World Cup for Japan, but instead the event was awarded to New Zealand in late November In tambo rugby , a form of tag rugby played in muddy rice fields, was introduced in Kyoto Prefecture.
At the Rugby World Cup, Japan beat South Africa 34—32 in their opening Pool B match, producing arguably the biggest shock in the history of professional rugby union.
After a nervy opening night win against Russia ,  Japan went on to beat Ireland 19—12,  a huge upset and a result few predicted.
Their third group game against Samoa ended in another win, this time , while also securing a highly important bonus point for scoring four or more tries.
In the highly anticipated final group game against Scotland, both teams needed to win to progress to the knockout stages at the expense of the other.
The match went ahead despite pre-game worries that it would have to be cancelled due to the ongoing issues caused by Typhoon Hagibis.
The pre-tournament rules stated that if the typhoon was sufficient enough to intervene, the game would be cancelled, and the result declared a draw.
This controversial rule  would have allowed Japan to progress by default due to previous results.
