"Japanese rugby is a basket case"

Post by Rugby Fan on Wed 24 Jan 2018, 12:39 am

Keith Davies, who has many years experience coaching in Japan, has written a grim picture of the sport in the country. His main complaints are about the institutional intransigence on the part of administrators, and coaching incompetence at all levels.

Here's a taste

Unlike other sporting leagues around the world, success in Japanese corporate rugby does not mean that you get more advertising, more TV revenue, bigger attendances and opportunities to promote your brand at your own stadiums and facilities.

Success & winning and advancement up the leagues in Japan just means that it is going to cost the company that owns the team a lot more money. No one will openly admit it of course, but in reality, many teams do not really want to get better, they cant afford to!!
