I think I’ve never seen a Japanese team get such a huge compliment from the world. I’m talking about the rugby match between Japan vs South Africa the other day.
Actually rugby is not a popular sport in Japan.
So this time, I was honestly surprised and still wondering about why so many people gave them warm messages.
It’s very nice of them, and I’m very happy as a Japanese.
But I still don’t get it yet.
Is it because of the game, right?
We’ll have Rugby World Cup in Japan in 2019, so now I start having more interest in rugby.
I learned the rules a little bit, and I learned the head coach, Mr. Eddie Jones is half Japanese- his mom is Japanese, and dad is Australian.
Thank you for the fans who gave the Japanese team warm messages.
