Canada 6-20 Japan (8-0-review)

First look at Ireland’s opening RWC2015 opponents Canada.  They appear well organised to be stingy on D and roll through the phases to create space for their strong pacy wingers van der Merwe & Hassler...their problem in this Pacific Nations Cup opener in San Jose was that Japan had a similar structure and were simply better at it.  Probably deserved a try to even the count but not to close points gap completely. They should improve with more game time.



Fancy penning an 8-0-review for HarpinOnRugby?
