Classic All Blacks vs Japan XV

japanxv cab Classic All Blacks vs Japan XV

The Classic All Blacks make another visit to Japan to take on Japan’s best on May 31 (Saturday) . Tickets go on sale from April 19 and they start as low as 500yen! But I believe that is for non-reserved seats at both goal ends. Heck, you could have a small party there and save the money for food and drinks. Go to JRFU’s (Japan Rugby Football Union) site to order tickets in English вк www.rugbyjapan.com

Last year the Classic All Blacks downed the Japanese team 35-26 in Kobe and 36 to 6 in Tokyo. The match will take place at a much larger venue this year. It will be held at Tokyo National Olympic Stadium where the national soccer team usually plays, with the kick off at 14:00. Japan coach John Kirwan’s national squad has come a long way since last year, with a respectable showing at the World Cup.
