The Cork Fijian.
Ireland and Japan are currently battling it out at the Aviva Stadium in a thrilling affair as the men in green look to get revenge on their 2019 Rugby World Cup defeat.
The Brave Blossoms took an early lead through a penalty from Tamura before Ireland grabbed the first try of the game through centre Chris Farrell thanks to some excellent work in the build-up from Caelan Doris.
Captain Michael Leitch then put Japan back in front after an excellent maul before the men in green got themselves back in front thanks to a bulldozing run in the corner from Munster’s Peter O’Mahony who then offloaded to Stuart McCloskey for an excellent score in the corner.
Japan then took the lead again thanks to an incredible try from Lafaele before Finlay Bealhma crashed over for Ireland just before the break. 19-17 to Ireland at half-time. Cracking game so far. Japan are really up for this and a joy to watch.
