League v Union

Dateline: July 14th, 2013

In the interests of getting the quasi-Japanese National Rugby League team some more game time, the Tokyo Gaijin RFC agreed to a half Rugby Union half Rugby League game against the Tokyo 13 warriors at the immmaculate Tatsumi Field.

With many of the Gaijin having never played league it was at times comical and at others an eyesore as they struggled with the rules of Rugby League - and let's face it, the rules of League are quite simple......compared to Rugby Union.

Edogawa 7’s

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC entered two teams into their first attempt at winning the Edogawa 7's. For the first time ever the Gaijin decided to go with a 'Locals' team and an 'Aliens' team with all their Japanese players in the former and all the foreigners of the squad in the second team. With 16 teams competing they would be doubling their chances of silverware.

Gaijin win despite numerous handling errors

Dateline: 16th June, 2013

In a closely fought encounter at the lovely, grassy Tatsumi Field the Tokyo Gaijin RFC held on to beat a mixed team of players from various teams in and around Tokyo that we'll call the Tokyo Barbarians 48 v 46. The match was not pretty and littered with mistakes and some poor tackling at times, but there was a lot of running rugby on display and plenty of tries.
