On the 6th of September the Tokyo Gaijin RFC (TGRFC) gathered in Akigase, near Nishi Urawa in Saitama for their first double-header in some time. A big squad of 34 guys answered the call to arms. First up was All Jin Jan, a strong team, and favorites to win the League. The Gaijin were keen for a measure of revenge as they had been demoted from Tokyo Cup 1st Division in the Spring season in a muddy 7v0 loss, while All Jin Jan had smashed Rocco East on the same day to gain promotion to 1st Division.
Despite a strong win over the Gentle Giants (40 v 12) yesterday the Gaijin failed to peg back the lead of All Jin Jan and missed out on their chance for a third straight Shuto League title. All Jin Jan finished the Autumn season with a superior bonus points tally, pipping the Gaijin by just one point (See the table below).
