Rugby World Cup in Japan Part 1
Play • 38 min

Excitement continues to build in Japan for the 2019 Rugby World Cup, which kicks off on September 20! Games will be held at 12 locations across the country, with the final match taking place on November 2 in Yokohama.

Jamie Coventry from New Zealand joins the podcast in this two-part episode to give his insights on rugby in Japan. He is a former player and coach, and also the current manager of the Hokkaido Barbarians rugby club - three time winners of the All Japan Championship and the current No. 1 ranked club team in the country! The Barbarians chairman, Mr. Inao Tajiri, is also the chairman of the Hokkaido Rugby Football Union, and was a major proponent in Sapporo’s successful bid to get two of the 2019 World Cup games to take place at Sapporo Dome.

Jamie also runs a rugby agency representing New Zealand players in Japan’s Top League and a small sportswear business. Listen now to learn about how the popularity of the sport has jumped following Japan’s 2015 victory over South Africa in the “greatest World Cup shock ever,” a preview of what is to come with Japan hosting the event this year, and much much more!
