Top League – Rugby’s firing in Japan!

9 11 2007

Wild Knights run up the scoreSome HUGE wins on the weekend… Toyota Verblitz skewered the Dynaboars, Sungoliath totally eclipsed the IBM boys, and the Sanyo Wild Knights – well… let’s just say that I was never more wrong than tipping against them! Game of the round – Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers vs Kyuden Volten – was as predicted a fantastic game indeed! The Steelers were made to work, but in the end got home against a very good Kyuden unit. Kobelco are the only team to have maximum points for the first two rounds.

The second round looked like this:

  • Yamaha Jubilo 19 NEC Green Rockets 23 (missed this – picked Jubilo)
  • Coca Cola West Red Sparks 25 Kubota Spears 13 (got this)
  • Toyota Verblitz 59 Mitsubishi Dynaboars 10 (got this)
  • Sanyo Wild Knights 72 Fukuoka Sanix Blues 5 (never more wrong than this one)
  • IBM Big Blue 13 Suntory Sungoliath 52 (got this)
  • Toshiba Brave Lupus 40 Ricoh Black Rams 24 (got this)
  • Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers 33 Kyuden Voltex 31 (aaaand got this!)
  • That leads us to this week’s match-ups.
    Round 3
    Nov 10 (Sat)
    NEC Green Rockets v Kyuden Voltex (Morioka Minami Koen, Iwate prefecture)
    Suntory Sungoliath v Coca Cola West Red Sparks (Hanazono, Osaka prefecture)
    Ricoh Black Rams v Sanyo Wild Knights (Morioka Minami Koen, Iwate prefecture)
    Toyota Verblitz v IBM Big Blue (Mizuho rugby stadium, Aichi prefecture)
    Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers v Mitsubishi Dynaboars (Hanazono, Osaka prefecture)
    Kubota Spears v Yamaha Jubilo (Chichibunomiya, Tokyo)Black Rams…
    Toshiba Brave Lupus v Fukuoka Sanix Blues (Chichibunomiya, Tokyo)

    Black Rams at home vs Sanyo could be a very good game… tipping the Wild Knights after their run-away win last week. Another I’m not certain on is Jubilo vs Kubota… not sure how good each team is!
