Assuming Scotland get a bonus point win against Russia on Wednesday then your “Brave Blossoms” need to win, draw or lose by 7 or less against Scotland on Sunday.

I’m hoping they do one of those, it’d be a big achievement and fantastic on home soil. ...  

Japanese fans are wearing their hearts on their sleeves...

There is even a Japanese expression for enthusiastic newcomers... "Niwaka fans" are 'bandwagon fans' or 'weekend fans' Another match to watch will be England vs. France... ...  

No, Scotland still have two games to play including against Japan.

Don’t forget the whole “bonus point” thing, win=4, win and score 4 tries=5. So Scotland could end up on 15 points with two bonus point wins. However if Japan lose to Scotland by 7 points or less they too get a losing “bonus point”, so also 15 points. ... 

Scotland murdered Russia and picked up a bonus point...

Typhoon №19 will hit Japan on the weekend...

 By: cshimokita : October 8th, 2019-05:55
It's currently building in strength and might be upgraded to a "super typhoon". Matches canceled due to the typhoon will be considered as a "draw"

It would be a very fortunate outcome for the home team.

Nobody likes a sporting result to be decided off the field so let’s hope it goes ahead. And I’m shouting for the Brave Blossoms.

a couple of matches were canceled including England vs. France : (

That's my prediction. I know the All Blacks are always the favorites. Hoping for a Welsh surprise. Anybody else filled out the Bloomberg bracket (RUGB GO). I got the Scotland - Ireland, Japan - Ireland, Uruguay - Fiji and Uruguay - Georgia games wrong.
