Japan’s best-ever Rugby World Cup campaign might have come to an end but head coach Jamie Joseph had no regrets after the hosts bowed out in the quarter-final.
The Brave Blossoms had qualified for the tournament’s quarter-final for the first time in their history but that dream run came to an end on Sunday with defeat at the hands of South Africa.
Joseph was beaming with pride after his men’s stellar campaign and insisted that they had fulfilled their objectives for the tournament.
Japan’s run in the 2019 Rugby World Cup included four wins in the group-stage including a memorable win over Ireland. The hosts finally ran out of steam in the last eight where they tasted a 3-26 defeat at the hands of the Springboks.
