The Tokyo Gaijin held their Annual General Meeting after training on Sunday 31st January to select the major positions within the team and discuss operations for the year. Read on for a brief description of what transpired.
The Tokyo Gaijin RFC started their 2016 season with a 'friendly' match against the Kawagoe Fighters in Kawagoe, in what has become an annual event. It was a cold day, with cold wind, but the guys were ready to blow away the cobwebs and rust developed over the festive season in their first match for two months. The team met at Kawagoe station (with some delay as a person fell onto the tracks). Once the team was ready, they took a to the stadium where the match was to be played.
Last year Tokyo Gaijin RFC defeated Kawagoe Fighters but it was a close, tough match so from the warm-up the team were focused on playing tough and fast.
For most the day after Christmas is usually known for finding ways to work off the heavy eating and drinking that came the day before. For the Tokyo Gaijin, this year the opportunity came to get out and run around Setagaya's Kinuta Park with a bunch of kids.
