Unceremoniously Flogged!

Date: 17th February, 2013

Komaba Watermelon Men unceremoniously dispatched a weak Tokyo Gaijin effort to progress to the next round of the Champions League. The unusually weak, disinterested and unmotivated effort was due in part to the team self-belief and part game approach.  However recognition of the very slick and well-drilled effort that the WMM  men put together must not be ignored.  Their complete domination of The TGRFC meant the 94 - 0 scoreline was now the biggest defeat that the TGRFC had ever suffered.

Pavesic puts Croatia on Rugby map

Dateline: January 27th, 2013

In a strong second half fightback the Tokyo Gaijin RFC beat Kurumi RFC 35 v 20 courtesy of 4 tries to Nikolai Pavesic. The Croatian forward had a storming game and was a standout for the Man of the Match award in a game where the Gaijin had to fight back from a 20 v 10 deficit.

Excellent first half gets Gaijin first up win for 2013

Dateline: 20th January, 2013

After almost two months with no rugby the members of the Tokyo Gaijin RFC must have been champing at the bit to get back into some rugby if the size of the squad assembled for the first fixture of 2013 was anything to go by. A squad of 29 players made their way out to Kawagoe on a chilly, windy Sunday to play against the Kawagoe Fighters in a 'Friendly' match. A big first half from the Tokyo Gaijin RFC was too much to overcome for the Kawagoe Fighters despite a strong second half fight-back. Joint top tryscorer for 2012, Sam Deroeck, got his year off to a good start scoring a hatrick in the first half.
