COMMENTARY:

Japan head coach Jamie Joseph has named 21 uncapped players in a 52-man training squad – his first squad announcement since the 2019 World Cup – ahead of the nation’s historic clash with the British and Irish Lions in June. The Brave Blossoms are scheduled to face the Lions at Murrayfield in Edinburgh on June 26 in what will be the first-ever clash between the two sides.

Joseph has called on a mix of his 2019 World Cup stars, uncapped players, homegrown talent and foreign imports to prepare for the match. 21 members of the World Cup squad, such as standout wing Kotaro Matsushima and captain Michael Leitch, have been recalled back into the training camp.

18 of those players were part of the match day side that featured in Japan’s first-ever World Cup quarter-final appearance in Tokyo two years ago, a match the Brave Blossoms lost 26-3 to eventual champions South Africa.

Among the cohort of uncapped prospects included in Joseph’s enlarged squad, there are a raft of names that will be familiar to Super Rugby fans.

Former Highlanders prop Craig Millar, who moved to Japan to join the Sunwolves in 2018, is one such player, as are ex-Blues lock Liaki Moli. The pair join the likes of former Hurricanes lock Mark Abbott, ex-Southern Kings midfielder Shane Gates and experienced outside back Gerhard van den Heever as uncapped foreigners who have completed residency requirements in order to become eligible for Japan.

All five players have subsequently been named in Joseph’s squad, as have three Australian youngsters – Dylan Riley, Jack Cornelsen and Ben Gunter – who are all one step closer to switching their allegiance to Japan.

Other notable uncapped players to have earned selection include those who have starred in the domestic Top League competition.

Tongan-born Kobelco Steelers No 8 Lui Naeata, who stands at 1.93m and 118kg, has been a dominant force for the reigning Top League champions since joining the club in 2018. As a result, the 27-year-old has been handed a maiden call-up to the national side and will compete with Highlanders star Kazuki Himeno, Canon Eagles powerhouse Amanaki Mafi and Suntory Sungoliath behemoth Tevita Tatafu for a place at the back of the scrum.

Likewise, halfback Naoto Saito has been in fine form while working in tandem with Beauden Barrett as halves partners at Suntory Sungoliath this season, and the 23-year-old is one of three scrumhalves in line for a potential test debut.

Based on the performances he has seen throughout the Top League this season, Joseph said he was “excited” for his side’s chances in the upcoming fixture, even if it has been 18 months since Japan last played a test match.

“It’s been a long time coming since our last squad announcement and I am very excited about our upcoming challenge against the British and Irish Lions,” he said in a statement.

“It will be a very special occasion for the team to play the Lions for the first time ever. Announcing this squad is the first step in our preparation.

“The 2021 Top League has produced some great team performances and the competition between the teams is a lot closer than past years which is great for the development of the game in Japan.”

Joseph added the Lions clash presents his uncapped players with a chance to prove their worth on the test scene following the departures of former senior players.

Two days after the announcement of the final squad to travel to the Scottish capital, the selected players will assemble for a 12-day training camp in Beppu, Oita between May 26 and June 8.

The Brave Blossoms will then play a warm-up match against a Sunwolves select in Shizuoka on June 12 before flying out to Scotland on June 16.

Obviously limited options at present but this game is hammering home we can't have the bench without proper 7 cover.

AWJ doesn’t look good tbh, I think he knew it. His time on the floor was the pain of disappointment, rather than a bone break (or whatever it was).

Lots of them on eBay for £18.

Im going to be honest and positive here, I really like the shirt in the flesh but it doesn't look as good on the TV as the last tour shirt.

I wanted the green changed shirt. Sold out by the time I first saw and has remained out of stock since. Bizarre they haven't done more there must be demand.

Very good first half. Murray faster at the breakdown than I’ve seen in a while. Owens took over captaincy without missing a beat and handing it to Biggar effectively who’s barking left right and centre in the cockpit. Henderson winning the lineout, and Aki/Henshaw going well in midfield. With the two wings on the scoresheet the only question mark I have is over Williams at 15.

Simon Thomas on Twitter saying both AWJ and Tipuric have suffered shoulder injuries. Make of that what you will.

Depends on the injury, docs might not want him to fly long haul if it's a nasty break with swelling etc.

Desperately bad luck for him. Looked nasty, I think it'll be Lions on the TV for him. Hopefully it's not to bad and he can still tour.

Watching on the feed from Argentina and the Spanish language commentators are calling it very fair. Excited by the spectacle, but keep mentioning areas for Lions to improve. Good Rugby analysis.

I think Biggar plays well into the strategy of Gatland, and also how to play against SA, looking at the semi final in the RWC Wales’ tactical kicking was superb, that is what Biggar brings to the table. Plus he is solid in chasing his own up and unders as well.

Henshaw defending superbly. Holds off and puts in the critical tackle to stop Japan. But his tendency to let arm go high occasionally in matches not as good.

Would you have Williams at 15 based on that display? Interesting to see which Stuart Hogg turns up when he joins squad.
