Bridesmaids. Again.

Tokyo Gaijin 0 Komaba WMM 12
Another year, another final, another disappointment. 
Despite a sterling first-half effort into the wind against the overwhelming favourites - in two years and eight matches of Tokyo Cup rugby, Komaba WMM had not failed to post 50 points in a game - Tokyo Gaijin eventually succumbed to some elusive running and, perhaps, a degree of over-confidence that resulted from the monumental first 40.
