12 p.m.: Yo rugby players! ÇWould you like to end this weekend on a high note?
We're not going to lie, this little England-Japan of families was one of the matches that we had checked off before this 2nd day of the group stage of the Rugby World Cup. Especially since England seems to have returned to its former state. roughly a respectable rugby team (I said roughly) and that on the other hand, Japan is always very strong to annoy the major rugby nations during major occasions. The Blue Blossom are currently ahead of the XV de la Rose by one point (they were successful against Chile, unlike the English against Argentina) and could make the break in the event of a victory . For both teams, success would almost be synonymous with qualification.
