So, here’s a quick wrap-up of last week’s games, and a preview of this week’s round.
- Toshiba Lupus 3 – Suntory Sungoliath 10
- Sanyo Wild Knights 19 – Kubota Spears 6
- Yamaha Jubilo 26 – Toyota Verblitz 20
- Ricoh Black Rams 9 – IBM Big Blue 3
- Kyuden Voltex 37 – Mitsubishi Dynaboars 15
- Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers 36 – NEC Green Rockets 21
- Fukuoka Sanix Blues 17 – Coca Cola West Red Sparks 13
Watched the Wild Knights game on TV, and it was a pretty good game despite inclement weather.

- Toshiba Brave Lupus v Ricoh Black Rams (Chichibunomiya, Tokyo)
- Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers v Kyuden Voltex (Nishi Kyogoku athletics stadium, Kyoto prefecture)
This week Lupus will bounce back from the loss to Suntory, and Suntory will go on their winning way. An excellent game will be between the Kobe Steel Kobelco Steelers and Kyuden Voltex – both of whom had very big scores last weekend. I’m tipping the Steelers to get up.
Should be a good weekend of rugby…
