Japan Surprised A Lot Of People With Their Half-Time Tactics Against England

Practice makes perfect.

Japan gave England a right scare in Twickenham today, taking a 15-10 lead at half-time to leave Eddie Jones’ men absolutely stunned.

Ryoto Nakamura scored an incredible try after 21 minutes, before Michael Leitch when in for a second 10 minutes before the break, with Japan beginning to dream.

Unfortunately it wasn’t to be a repeat of their Rugby World Cup 2015 heroics against South Africa however, as England gained control in the second-half to win the game 35-15.

But Japan can be applauded for their effort, and had an interesting tactic at half-time. The entire team came out 5 minutes early – to practice lineouts and backline moves. They gave it their best, no one can deny them that.
