Season 4 | Episode 25
12m | Feb 2, 2024

Welcome back to the Japan Rugby Weekly Podcast!

I'm Doug the translator, and this week we preview the opening round of the Cross-Border Rugby between the Chiefs, Blues, Suntory Sungoliath and the Panasonic Wild Knights. I also react to the news that 3 new teams in the Yakult Levins, the Secom Rugguts and LeRIRO Fukuoka will be joining Japan Rugby League One from next season.
