September 20th, 2007

Wales cruised to a commanding 11-try 72-18 victory over Japan at the Millenium Stadium.

The Welsh began in shaky fashion in a disjointed first half, but the Asian minnows were never going to upset the Celtics. The Cherry Blossoms scored a good try through right winger Kosuke Endo but after an initial stutter, the Welsh ensured they went to the break having already secured the bonus point for four tries.

Scrumhalf Michael Phillips scored soon after the half to wrap up the win and elevate Wales to second place on the log. It was not always clinical rugby from the Dragons, who fumbled a few opportunities against a weak Japanese defence.

Shane Williams scored in the 50th minute after an impressive build up, and from this moment the floodgates opened. The fight from Japan was ever-apparent, but there structure was woeful. They lost possession off the first phase regularly and the Welsh made them pay for their mistakes.

Wales flyhalf Stephen Jones was on song with the boot and with the ball in hand setting up several tries through some sniping breaks. Wales could have punished Japan to a severe degree if they had held their passes, and although they won handsomely in Cardiff there is still some cause for concern over their finishing ability.

Japan scored two tries of their own but unlike the fixtiure against Fijij they were never in the game. With this loss they bow out of contention and will fight for a consolation win against Canada in their final Pool B match.

Wales - Tries: Alun Wyn-Jones, James Hook, Rhys Thomas, Kevin Morgan, Mike Phillips, Shane Williams (2), Dafydd James, Gareth Cooper. Martyn Williams (2). Conversions: Stephen Jones (6), Ceri Sweeney. Penalty: Jones.
Japan - Tries: Kosuke Endo, Hirotoki Onozawa. Penalties: Shotaro Onishi (2).
