In the Land of the Rising Scrum

As the July series draws near, the spotlight intensifies on All Blacks head coach Scott Robertson, who embarks on a crucial scouting mission in Japan. Amidst the bustling stadiums and electrifying atmosphere, Robertson keenly observes as the Brave Lupus Tokyo, featuring stalwarts Shannon Frizell and Richie Mo’unga, triumph over the Sagamihara Dynaboars with a riveting 41-19 victory.

In a parallel encounter, Ardie Savea’s Kobe Steelers put up a valiant fight but ultimately succumb to the relentless assault of the Japan Rugby League One leaders, Saitama Wild Knights, in a gripping 28-18 showdown.

While the games unfold, Robertson's gaze extends beyond the scoreboard, delving into the intricacies of player performance and potential implications for the All Blacks. However, looming eligibility concerns cast a shadow over certain players' futures, with Mo’unga's current ineligibility due to a lucrative deal in Asia and uncertainties surrounding Frizell's availability for the upcoming series.

In the wake of intense scrutiny, Robertson's insights shed light on the physical preparedness of key players, affirming the All Blacks' confidence in their conditioning and coaching regimes.

Amidst the fervor of the matches, Robertson acknowledges the significant New Zealand influence permeating Japanese rugby, with numerous Kiwi players and coaches shaping the league's landscape. Their expertise in strength and conditioning amplifies the league's competitiveness, fostering a dynamic environment ripe for growth and innovation.

As the scouting mission concludes, Robertson emphasizes the need for vigilance and adaptability in the face of Japan's evolving rugby landscape. With the July series looming on the horizon, his observations in Japan will undoubtedly play a pivotal role in shaping the All Blacks' strategies and selections, igniting anticipation and excitement amongst fans worldwide.
