Japan v Georgia, Japan finished their June test series in style Saturday as they beat Georgia 28-0 at Toyota Stadium, one of the 12 venues for Rugby World Cup 2019.
Having split their two-test series with Italy, the Brave Blossoms produced a mature performance despite conditions that seemed to favour the visitors.
Heavy rain ensured a very slippery surface and both teams put boot to ball in the hope of winning the territory stakes and forcing their opponents into mistakes.
It was a tactic that worked to Japan’s advantage though as not only did the Brave Blossoms field the Georgian kicks well, but they used a good chase game to constantly put the Lelos under pressure.
The first half saw Japan take a 9-0 lead thanks to two penalties by Yu Tamura and one by Ryuji Noguchi as the Georgians were unable to cope with the pressure put on them in the loose.
