Japan Men's National Rugby Team News


October 3, 2015 - Ayumu Goromaru kicks 4 penalties & 2 conversions in 26-5 win over Samoa
"Japan moved a step closer to a fairytale World Cup quarter-final appearance with an impressive win over a Samoan side dogged by indiscipline in front of a record crowd at Milton Keynes. Samoa gave away a ridiculous 17 penalties compared to Japan's four and had three players sent to the sin-bin in a wretched performance which ends their hopes of reaching the last eight. Eddie Jones's well-drilled Japan side were back to their Springbok-slaying best after losing to Scotland as full-back Ayumu Goromaru scored 16 points with six successful kicks from eight to add to two tries." - Daily Mail

September 19, 2015 - Ayumu Goromaru kicks 5 penalties & 2 conversions in 34-32 win over South Africa
"Japan stunned two-time champions South Africa to cause arguably the biggest upset in rugby union history. Karne Hesketh crossed in the final minute to win an incredible World Cup Pool B encounter in Brighton.... Coached by Eddie Jones, who was part of the Springboks staff during their 2007 triumph, the Brave Blossoms were committed in the tackle and always looking to attack, with fly-half Fumiaki Tanaka dictating the tempo of their game - while Ayumu Goromaru put in a near-flawless kicking display." - BBC
