Rugby: Suntory energy past Honda in front of ex-Japan manager Jones

There was a informed face during Prince Chichibu Memorial Rugby Ground on Saturday as Eddie Jones watched his aged bar Suntory Sungoliath flog Honda Heat 50-0 for their second true win of a new Top League season.

The stream England coach, who has a prolonged station organisation with Suntory, is behind for a brief outing and a event to watch Sungoliath play was too good to spin down.

“I’m only carrying a holiday here. we can watch all a games in England on a computer,” a former Japan manager pronounced when asked because he was in Tokyo on a opening weekend of a English Premiership.

And while a rugby on arrangement didn’t accurately compare that of a 2011-12 patrol he guided to a joining title, he was gratified to see his aged side win.

“I suspicion Suntory were bad in a initial half and really good in a second,” he said. “In a initial half they kept Honda in a game. They played during a delayed gait and kept going to scrum, line-out and flog with no result. They didn’t demeanour assertive and didn’t get by a line.”

“In a second half, George Smith started to lift a round some-more and Kosei Ono was personification agree so they were a opposite team.”

That “game of dual halves” was reflected in a scoreboard with Suntory scoring dual tries in a initial half and 5 in a second, as Honda wilted badly.

“We were beaten by Suntory in all a stats,” pronounced Honda manager Tomoaki Fujimoto. “We wanted to play a diversion in a Suntory half though we simply couldn’t get any possession.”

In a day’s other games, Munakata Sanix Blues won a thriller in Yamaguchi violence Toyota Industries Shuttles 41-38, NTT Communications Shining Arcs came from behind to flog Ricoh Black Rams 28-13 and Kintetsu Liners edged Coca-Cola Red Sparks 26-19.

On a warm, wet night in a nation’s capital, Suntory non-stop a scoring in a fourth minute, when No. 8 Hendrik Tui dived over following good work by his associate forwards.

Ono combined a extras and afterwards combined a chastisement 8 mins after after Honda column Salesi Manu was rather cruelly given a yellow label for doing small some-more than permitting a Suntory actor to run into him off a round and rebound off his 122-kilogram frame.

Smith might have been a oldest actor on a representation though he was wearing a snazziest boots and he used them to good outcome in a 27th minute, sprinting over following an all-too-easy prevent 22 meters out.

Ono was again on aim with his flog as Suntory went 17-0 up.

The Suntory core pairing of Ryoto Nakamura and Kotaro Matsushima both looked good though both were guilty during times of perplexing to do too most on their own, as Suntory left a series of points out on a margin during a initial half.

Tui extended a lead when he went over from a five-meter scrum 4 mins into a second stanza, as Honda were once again on a wrong finish of Kimitoshi Shiozaki’s alarm — a central penalizing Honda 21 times in a diversion to only 3 opposite Suntory.

And with a diversion won, Honda’s invulnerability fell detached permitting Suntory to supplement a serve 4 tries with Masakatsu Nishikawa bagging a brace, Yutaka Nagare and Kenta Tsukamoto also channel a chalk, and Ono adding a serve 3 conversions.

“In a initial half we were too frightened to mangle a line and didn’t play Suntory rugby,” pronounced conduct manager Keisuke Sawaki, echoing a thoughts of Jones. “But in a second half we played with good dash and dominated a game.”
