The Tokyo Gaijin RFC and their supporters gathered at Akigase Koen out in Urawa on a bitterly cold Sunday to play their last game of the 2010 Shuto League against All Jin Jan - a match that had been delayed due to a rain washout. The final clash of the 2010 Shuto League was basically a Grand Final as the two teams were even on points. All Jin Jan, despite losing to the Gaijin last year, ended up as League Champions after the Gaijin dropped a game to the cellar-dwelling Fuji Club. The Gaijin had also bested All Jin Jan again earlier in 2010 by beating them in injury time to win the 2010 Shuto 10's in a rivetting final and again in the first game of the Sugadaira 7's a week later. The teams are developing a strong rivalry and the closeness of past matches meant that this game was going to be a cracker.
2010 saw the inaugural Tokyo Gaijin - Seoul Survivors exchange take place. The event was the brainchild of current Gaijin and former Survivor Aaron Nutsford, and perfect Seoul spring weather greeted the Gaijin tourists who had made the trip over early in September.
Thank you very much to all the people who attended the Tokyo Gaijin Christmas Party and Awards Dinner for 2010. Also a big thank you to those that wanted to attend to show their support but were not able to do so for any manner of reasons. Also big thank yous to our sponsors Oakwood, helpers, family and friends for making it possible for us to play week in and week out.
