The complex Japanese-made “rugby machine” is currently undergoing the process of rust removal. This has been dormant for more than two years since the last World Cup. The Japanese team made nine tries against Ireland in their first European game. But they performed well against Scotland. Losing 9 points in the final game of the season.

Signs of Resurgence of Talent

Although the Brave Blossoms lost at home to the two teams they defeated at the 2019 World Cup in Japan (Ireland and Scotland), in Edinburgh, the team showed a glimpse of rugby two years ago.

Joseph, who led the team in the last World Cup, hinted after the final that he believes the team has finally regained its glory in 2019 despite its struggles.

“The players showed the Japanese brand and put pressure on their opponents. It’s a shame we missed the opportunity because of a mistake,” he said.

2019 Rugby World Cup

All teams have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. But last summer, when players from the Southern Hemisphere and Europe resumed national league and national team matches. The Japanese national team had to remain inactive. After the 2019 Rugby World Cup, the Brave Blossoms did not start their training camp until May 2021. The test match against the British and Irish Lions resumed in June. But there were only six caps left for the Scottish team.

As demonstrated during the 2019 Rugby World Cup. The Japanese national team, with its well-built team organization. Remains competitive in the competition with strong rugby teams. He possesses excellent physical fitness and personal skills. Compared to other national teams, the cornerstone of Japanese rugby’s success is its slow and stable construction. So there is no doubt that two years of inactivity has become a major obstacle.

Joseph looked at a sense of urgency and said: “Due to the impact of the epidemic, the reduction in the number of matches has delayed the preparation of the Japanese national team for the next World Cup. We have two years to make up for this delay.”
