Bugs smashed again

Dateline: 12th May, 2013

Sometimes, just sometimes, the clouds clear, metophorically and literally, to create the perfect day where fun can be expected around every corner.  For me, the 12th of May was this day.

Yamanashi Tour

Dateline: 12th May, 2013

Midai Minami Rugby Field

The Tokyo Gaijin RFC kicked off their tour out to Yamanashi for their annual game against one of the local teams with a 8am meet out at Yanokuchi. A few guys were late due to an 'acccident' on one of the central railway lines but we were out on the highway by 9am and got out to Yamanashi without, unusally, any traffic problems.

Heartbreaking last-minute loss to Olivers RFC

Dateline: 28th April, 2013

With the memories of a humbling loss two weeks earlier the Tokyo Gaijin RFC rallied at the Kasai Rinkai Koen ground once more to take on a strong, yet depleted Olivers RFC in the second round of the Tokyo Cup. With our own problems resulting from a forwards injury list longer than my… arm, a late call up to new recruit Kosuke Yamamoto meant we were able to put a competitive side on the park.
